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!

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 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 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!!!

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!

I found the detail incredibly well thought out and quite informative. These courses are such a joy to me- as a life-long student of history, I find myself more and more intrigued with each segment. Thank you for providing such a quality course!

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!

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 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.

I enjoyed working my way through the modules and learned much. I liked the way "asides" were inserted into the text so that reading did not become a chore, more of an enjoyment. Many of my misconceptions and gaps in knowledge were corrected. Thank you.

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.

This course was incredibly informative, it told me so much about the crime and punishment law that I did not know, it was awesome.

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.

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 loved the course. I wasn't expecting so many personal tales about common, every day people which I thoroughly enjoyed and found helped to ground the knowledge I had learned.

A wonderful course full of fascinating detail. This course has brought Anne Boleyn to life for me and it has inspired me to learn more. The modules have been so enjoyable, filled with interesting facts and quotes, that I shall listen to them again and again. Thank you for a fantastic course.

I have enjoyed the course. The lessons have been well presented and the subject matter has been very interesting. The quotes from original texts really brings history to life.

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 was not expecting the depth of detail....I really enjoyed this course- and found it through studying past courses. I just finished reading "Heroines of the Medieval World" by Sharon Bennett Connolly and would suggest this be added to the suggested reading list as many of the women discussed in this course are found in this wonderful book.
I also enjoyed, in particular, the referring back to peoples introduced at different times of this course. Well done!

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.

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!

I liked this course very much and really enjoyed it. I learned so much with each lesson and got from it new information that I'd never read or heard before. My favorite lessons were"The Knight's Tale" and "The Stationer's and Printer's Tale". I didn't expect the videos at the end of some of the lessons, but they were extremely interesting,

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.

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!

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!!
