I really enjoyed this course because it has taught me so many things about women from medieval and Tudor times that are so amazing!! There are so many cool stories in this course...I wonder why Hollywood hasn't made some of them into movies yet!
Thank you!! I very much enjoyed this!

I found this course extremely enjoyable. It cast a new light on Richard III and dispelled some of the myths I thought were truth. I still have questions but there are just some things we can't know. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in history.

I absolutely loved it!!! Honestly it was so informative and I loved reading about the Borgias. They're a family that have always fascinated me. So! :). Another amazing course, I can't wait to do more :).

I loved this course. I enjoyed listening to each lesson and I learned so much! It was a privilege and a pleasure to listen to the lovely and clear narration. I intend to take further courses. Thank you for all the hard work it must have taken to put this all together!

Thoroughly enjoyed this course, just as I've enjoyed each previous course that I've taken here! Particularly happy that you devoted time to William Marshal!

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.

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 truly enjoyed each and every unit of the Anne Boleyn course! I do hope Claire can be convinced to put together another course in the future!

I found this course really informative and enjoyable, I have learnt a lot about both the Wars of the Roses and Richard III. The course had much more content then I was expecting in just ten lessons but the half hour lessons were just the right length to listen to one at a time. I look forward to taking another of the Medieval Courses!!

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.

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 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 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.

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!

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.

I loved the course,I didn't do so good 😞, I'm not good with dates, (lol!) but course was interesting.

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!

It was great! I enjoyed the history of crime and punishment and especially the individual histories of criminals I've never heard of since I'm in the States. Mary Ann Cotton's case is especially interesting and sad. Interesting, too, that one of the perpetrators was shipped off to Maryland where I live. I always get so much out of these courses and this one was no exception. Thank you for the course!

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 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.

Thank you very much for your email. I did indeed thoroughly enjoy my course. I found every single module fascinating and I loved the way that each queen was linked with a thought provoking theme. I found the lectures extremely enjoyable to listen to and I shall enjoy listening to them again and again.I also found it extremely helpful to have the transcript to read.

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!

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.

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 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!
