I enjoyed the whole course. I learned so much but I didn't know how complicated the subject is. And I was surprised about the canceling of Christmas. Well- planned course and well-written.

I loved this course. Having read so many historical novels on Richard III, I was pleased to realise how much of them were actually true.

I am enjoying the course as they are filling in some blanks, I did recreational history at Kentwell Hall for 30 years and am OK on the Tudor stuff but I felt I had gaps in the early stuff, so am using the course as a jump-off point, and I am having fun.

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!

I thought the course was excellent. It gave enough information, but not too much. It was thorough, interesting and I enjoyed having to answer the questions. Again, I thought the balance of the course to be perfect. Many thanks, I genuinely enjoyed it!

I thoroughly enjoyed the course and only wish that it had been much longer. It reinforced my knowledge from the numerous books that I have read on the subject and I gleaned many new facts. I had not expected the inclusion of the 1984 Trial which I had previously dismissed due to its date (i.e. not having the facts of the most recent archaeological finds) but found it very interesting.

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.

I thoroughly enjoyed everything about this course and I've learned so much. I read most of the lessons and listened to Claire for two of them. It's very hard for me to remember dates and titles and it is confusing when people are referred to by their place they are associated with instead of their names.

It's wonderful that these lessons are available at all times because a review, I'm sure, will be helpful and supplementary to my own reading and research,

I have signed up for another course since I've loved this one so much.

I was very pleased to see the first course from Medieval Courses, “Everyday Life of Medieval Folk”, offers a truly exhaustive and beautifully-crafted look at medieval society... “Everyday Life of Medieval Folk” brings you an extensively detailed and wonderfully diverse overview of medieval society; this is real social history with real stories about real people.

I'm still working on The Warrior Kings which is a challenge with so much to remember! I always enjoy whatever you have to say about any of these great historical topics

I greatly enjoyed taking Everyday Life of Medieval Folk from Medieval courses. The 20 modules cover a wide range of interesting topics and detail many fascinating people and facts.
Each module is written in an easy to follow style and filled with so many wonderful tidbits of medieval daily life and the end of module quiz is a great way to test your knowledge of what your learning.
I highly recommend this course to anyone with an interest in learning more about the medieval time period. I found I learned a lot more about the time period than I previously knew. Thank you, Toni.

I loved the course thank you. This is the first one of its kind that I have experienced. It is extremely interesting and deals very clearly with what is a very complicated area of history ie. The Wars of the Roses. I still can't get a handle on that family tree!

I actually work as a volunteer at the Richard iii centre in Leicester so I have a quite good knowledge of his life and death and the dig carried out therein 2012. However, this course has really supplemented my knowledge... Thank you very much.

I loved this course! As a lover of medieval British history, I was so excited to find a course on women! Aside from being extremely informative on the lives of women across the social scale, it was also very entertaining! I can’t wait to sign up for my next course!

Although I thought this course rather brief in its materials, quite an in depth study was provided. The C of E has always intrigued me as I was raised Lutheran and not only enjoyed learning about Martin Luther but Henry VIII- particularily as he was so against Martin Luther's leaning initially. I find it fascinating how politics and religion try time and again throughout history to convince people they are "seperate" entities but are so completely intertwined and almost inseperable.
