I loved this course and it reinforced my knowledge of Richard and the war of the roses

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

I love these courses. I learned a lot from this one and all the others. Keep them coming!

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!

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
I really really enjoyed this course and look forward to taking more!:) This is the kind of stuff that I've ALWAYS been looking for! Just perfect

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 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.

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
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
I really did enjoy this course. I was a little skeptical because the Reformation isn't my favorite subject but I learned a lot.
Kimberly Finney November 23, 2020
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.
Olga December 30, 2015
This course is such an eye opener into the life and times of both women and men and also the mention of children . The units are both balanced and reasoned and can be absorbed. Yes a brilliant course .
Paul Barnett November 23, 2020
Very interesting and well presented.
Janet Avery October 23, 2019
I have very much enjoyed this course and have definately learnt more about Richard III as well as the Tudor era.
Luisa Short March 3, 2020
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
Just great 🙂
Sarah Peters October 13, 2019
I loved this course and learned so much more about the Wars of the Roses and King Richard III!
Allison Stohacker February 19, 2020
This course was very interesting. It really gave insight into what life was like for women in this time.
Jaime Saranczak April 5, 2020
I love everything about these courses! I love how they are taught and proceed! Thanks so much!!
Julie March 6, 2017
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 June 19, 2017
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.
Kathy October 26, 2016
Fascinating, thank you so much.
Wendy Ahl January 29, 2018
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!
Deborah June 29, 2017
This course was very stimulating and highly interesting.
Samantha July 21, 2017
Very interesting course.

i loved everything
Cameron Mounde February 12, 2021
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!
Jackie Kossoff April 3, 2018
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.
Sandra August 24, 2016
I have been a member of the Richard lll Society for many, many years and I can honestly say I loved this course which Toni has written and produced beautifully.
I hope it will encourage others to learn about Richard and his life and times. This is a fascinating period to study which has everything: battles, knights, castles, treason - sufficient to surely draw the interest of those with an interest in past.
Well done to all concerned!
Janine March 22, 2016
I really did enjoy the course.
Mary October 1, 2016

Caroline Sprigg March 15, 2018
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.
Elizabeth January 10, 2017
Yes, I did enjoy it. I found the whole course interesting and informative.

Jennifer June 7, 2017
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.

Very interesting and intriguing course I learned quite a lot from it. Thank you!

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
I really enjoyed this course. The Medici Family were quite an interesting lot
Teresa Brodrick March 3, 2020
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.
Debra Bienek January 18, 2021

Francine Friedland December 15, 2020
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!
