I loved this course, but I found it the most challenging so far of the ones I've taken. There is a lot of detail in this one and a lot of names and dates. Overall, it was fun and I am going back to read and listen to all the course materials again.

I loved this course and learned so much more about the Wars of the Roses and King Richard III!
Allison Stohacker February 19, 2020
I am so enjoying the course - more than I expected - I have read all of Claire's books so knew her research was extensive - this surpasses those expectations.
Debbie January 31, 2017
Just great 🙂
Sarah Peters October 13, 2019
I was absolutely mesmerized by the lesson on Anne Boleyn's coronation. It was well past time to shut the computer off but I read a paragraph and the "story" of her coronation was so real, colorful and exciting that I couldn't stop reading.
Thank you so much for such professional work that allows me to continue to learn and occasionally find myself back in 1533 as I did last night.
Sandra August 4, 2017
I am enjoying the course [Everyday Life] immensely!
Ann January 6, 2016
Very informative and fun!
Elizabeth Donaghue April 23, 2018
It was very interesting, it was very intriguing, it was easy to read, fun to do.
Sandra Akin May 17, 2020
A great and worthwhile course. I will study more on Medieval Courses for certain!
Tonya Osborne-Blake October 30, 2017
I am an amateur medievalist and ate up this course - full hog! Toni Mount presents a delightful and insightful examination of ordinary (tho truly exceptional) lives lived so many hundreds of years ago. Each person is examined as his and her stations in life are exposed and gently likened to "modern" traditions. I loved this course and want more!

Easy to access and full of great information, renowned historian and medieval author Toni Mounts explores the world of the medieval period in her course “Everyday Life of Medieval Folk”.
With the course online and able to be accessed throughout the year you are able to study in your own time, at your own pace, and in the comfort of your own home! With twenty units focusing on different people and occupations of the medieval period there is something for everyone in this course.
Finally there is a medieval course available for everyone no matter where they live in the world!

I love these courses. I learned a lot from this one and all the others. Keep them coming!
Sandra Warfield August 20, 2018
I have thoroughly enjoyed this course, and plan on taking many more from you!
Amanda November 14, 2016
Thank you so much for giving me the pleasure of doing this course. It was an extraordinary experience that enriched my love and passion for Tudor history. Thank you for giving an Argentinian as me living far far away from London the possibility of learning and construing more knowledge. In the coming days, I'm starting the Anne Boleyn course too!
Ivana January 23, 2017
Another enjoyable course! No criticisms!
Laticia Wolter May 8, 2018
This course was incredibly informative, it told me so much about the crime and punishment law that I did not know, it was awesome.
Charlotte July 28, 2017
I really enjoyed this course, the modules were fascinating. The audio lessons were both informative and enjoyable. I have definitely learnt a lot about the day to day lives of medieval people.
Jennifer June 7, 2017
I enjoyed all the modules immensely.
Samantha Bulmer October 1, 2017
It was great
Renee November 24, 2016
I love everything about these courses! I love how they are taught and proceed! Thanks so much!!
Julie March 6, 2017
I enjoyed the course very much, especially how each lesson built on the previous lessons. I learnt things about this time that I hadn’t heard of before. I suspected that women had to work very hard and this course confirmed that.
Alana Ask April 5, 2020
The courses are great and I hope to take as many as possible. Not having a deadline is nice and no final exams or papers to write!
Sandra October 21, 2016
I absolutely loved it. I am currently researching for a TV series about the wars of the roses, so this gave me lots of help and ideas.
Rebecca Morris August 20, 2018
It was mentioned in a Medieval Archives podcast that I subscribe to. I am enjoying these courses quite a lot, and I was not expecting the layout of the courses to be as easily accessible as they are.
Amy Giggar September 19, 2017
Enjoyed this course very much. Would have loved to have videos sprinkled along with the recorded lectures for more variety. But overall the course quality was excellent. Liked all the examples and stories.
Barbora Bell October 29, 2020
I have done several courses and enjoyed them all!
Laticia Wolter September 13, 2017
The course was wonderful! I learned a lot of new information. I think the course paired well with the other courses offered by Medieval Courses. I also really like the bonus material that was added.
Kimberly April 28, 2017
Organized, factual and quite fascinating. I loved the narrator’s beautiful accent. Listened not for details but for general new information.
Virginia Dane May 17, 2020
Really enjoyed it
Angharad Yeo May 17, 2021
Very good indeed. Thanks a lot !!!
Newton July 21, 2017
I really enjoyed this course and learned a lot!
Francesca January 29, 2016
I have learned many facts that I did not learn from history books.
Wendy Koenigsmann September 3, 2021
I LOVED the course! All you need is a computer and you're set. I like that you can keep the transcripts from each module. I think the parts I enjoyed the most were the examples of 'ever day' people. Instead of just focusing on royalty there were countless examples of commoners, middle class people, higher ranking people and of course royalty. Loved that!
Sarah January 5, 2016
I enjoyed every minute of doing the course, as a relatively recently new member of the Richard the III Society it has given me a very good basis on which I can build and learn more. I can now contribute to discussions more. It has also along with some other sources helped me finally make a decision about what I believe happened to the Princes, not that I doubted Richard's good character for a minute!
The course is well set out, clear and easy to understand. Easy to start, put down and then return to again so as it can be fitted into a busy life. I think I may well go on to do the heroes and villains course when I have the money to do so.
Caroline June 23, 2016
I really enjoyed this course. It was easy to understand and just enough information in each unit to explore the topic and I never felt as if I was inundated with facts and dates to make it too confusing. A good gentle introduction for beginners. I recommend this course for those who are just casually interested in medieval history or as a beginning foundation for those looking to be more invested in this topic.
Amy June 20, 2016
Thank you for letting me try out this course during your trial period. I really enjoyed all of the modules (20!) and learned a lot of things I didn't know before. Toni Mount's research is great, and Claire Ridgway's reading made learning a joy.
Tudor Guy Everyday Life of Medieval Folk December 3, 2015
I consider myself well-versed in Tudor times. I learned a lot of new things I didn't know during and previous to this time period.
Kimberly Finney November 23, 2020
I loved the course, studying each new topic was a real treat for me after a boring working day, and I didn’t expect to be so gripped
Polina Zemtsevatrista-farnon April 23, 2018
i loved everything
Cameron Mounde February 12, 2021
I absolutely loved this course - full of titbits of information I didn't know! I also appreciated the references to records and of real people - it makes all the difference when informed of something. Wonderful!
Jen Morgan September 3, 2021
I absolutely loved this course and learned so much - I am glad we could download the transcripts as I will definitely be reading them over and over again. Am just sorry it is finished.
Wendy February 12, 2016
I really enjoyed this course: it's the kind of history you never learnt in school - about real people and real lives. In fact, it answered many of the questions I've had in the back of my mind about what life used to be like, particularly for women during this period. I liked the 'story-telling' style, too, which was very readable, and the anecdotes and quotes from the period. Finally, having a 'quiz' at the end of each module was a nice touch: not too arduous or time-consuming! Thanks for putting together this fun, but very informative, course.
Dianne Penny August 10, 2020
Very interesting and well presented.
Janet Avery October 23, 2019
Thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you for making it so interesting.
Helen Thompson September 3, 2021
This course was very enjoyable to do, its great to learn exactly how medieval and tudor women lived and what they had to do in every day lives. Would recommend to anyone interested in the era.
Luisa Short January 18, 2021
I loved this course and it reinforced my knowledge of Richard and the war of the roses
Karen Clewes July 22, 2020
How we used to live... So fascinating, especially when compared with the similarities of today. Toni Mount has produced an interesting and engaging course which I absolutely loved completing. I have learned so much! My favourite section was The Archer's Tale and I liked the video of the man who completed the pilgrimage to Canterbury from Southampton. Well done, Toni! This course is a winner!
Janine April 25, 2016
I have loved this course and I have learned a great deal. It is well-constructed and very accessible, which makes learning a real joy. Thank you to all concerned.
Angela Blaydon September 18, 2017
Through Facebook. Very informative!
June Binnie October 6, 2021
I have very much enjoyed this course and have definately learnt more about Richard III as well as the Tudor era.
