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.

I absolutely loved everything about the course. I enjoy being able to read and listen to the course material. Each module has been fascinating and with just the right amount of detail. I have loved each module so much that I shall definitely read and listen to the modules again and again. I especially enjoy doing the end of module quiz and I found the family trees extremely useful. I was surprised by the televised trial and I was totally engrossed in it. I loved the video of the poem written by the Poet Laureate. I found it beautiful, thought-provoking and moving. Thank you for a wonderful course.

This course was absolutely amazing! I have learned a lot about Richard´s predecessors and about the recent research about his so much deserved reburial. I learn things I have never heard about before, such as the Trial. It really made me consider things I have never imagined, such as What if Elizabeth of york, Henry VII´s wife have had the possibility of seeing the ´pretender´?? That really makes me doubt a lot! This history is fascinating!!

The course material was very comprehensive and helped to finish the course.

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!

I attended one of Toni Mount's history groups, and yet the course has still been very enjoyable and informative.

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

Organized, factual and quite fascinating. I loved the narrator’s beautiful accent. Listened not for details but for general new information.

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 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.

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've taken several of your courses. I did enjoy this one very much, as expected. The amount of detail for each module held my interest. Very nice to see the video of Steven Payne in The Pilgrim's Tale module! I followed his pilgrimage via social media as it happened and found it fascinating!

Richard III has always been a particularly fascinating historical character to me: the mysteries surrounding his nephews, Richards supposed villainy at odds with his acts as a King, his heartbreaking losses of wife and child, his undying loyalty to his brother....contradictions abound! So this course, as others I have perused, only served to intrigue me further. What I would give to have that moment (or two!) with a contemporary, reliable source!
I was not expecting a decidedly pro-Ricardian stance - not that it swayed or determined any frame of mind I have or questions I have- I was expecting a more "cut and dry" formula. Was rather surprised and pleased to have personal opinion inserted into this extremely well-done and presented course!

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 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!

This course was delightful- very well presented and educational all the while entertaining. I was able to work on this course during my two weeks' spring break over the Easter holiday- all my "free" time- I found myself empathizing with these women of history. Laundry was being done, grocery lists being made, dinner cooking, treats baking, house being dusted and vacuumed, sheets changed...all the while my mind on the next section of this course. Truly I realized that with all the difficulties I think I have running a household (and only for my husband and I and our two himalayan kittens: Shakespeare and Paddington as our three children are grown and gone!), I cannot begin to place myself in the time line of the medieval and tudor women and the amount of work they accomplished every day- without conveniences and with much peril. Thank you for such an enlightening course. I do look forward to many more!

I have immensely enjoyed this course and came upon it by accident when I was surfing the net looking for info about Richard III. Following his discovery in the car park, I have become very interested in him and the history of the wars of the roses.
Thank you very much for this course, it was a pleasure to study.

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

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.

Just wanted to say thank you for the above course. Mr Russell did a very good job presenting it. I learned a lot, even more about my favorite queen, Anne Boleyn.

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.
Sharon Penman, Jean Plaidy and Phillipa Gregory among them.

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 love the course! I love opportunities that give me the chance to step into the Tudor world and learn, and this is perfect! I love the flexibility, as you guys know I have very little free time. This course gives me the opportunity to learn at my leisure. That is so great for people like me!!!
