Fantastic, very easy to listen too and knowledgeable. I will be buying more!

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.

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

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 really enjoyed this course. The Medici Family were quite an interesting lot

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
Polina Zemtsevatrista-farnon April 23, 2018
I found this course through FaceBook and enjoyed it immensely! I hope to purchase more of your courses soon, and will recommend them to others.
Laticia August 24, 2016
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 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,

The readings were interesting and not too bogged down with dates to have to remember. The End I’d Lesson quizzes were fun!
Wendy Robertson May 17, 2020
This course was very stimulating and highly interesting.
Samantha July 21, 2017
Thank you so much! I thoroughly enjoyed the Six Wives course and certainly learned quite a bit that was unknown to me previously.
Liane October 21, 2016
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.
Samantha July 18, 2017
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.
Marsha January 19, 2016
Very interesting and intriguing course I learned quite a lot from it. Thank you!
Sandra Warfield July 2, 2019
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
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!
Laticia May 9, 2017
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.
Wendy February 12, 2016
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.
Sarah January 19, 2016
Fascinating, thank you so much.
Wendy Ahl January 29, 2018
I attended one of Toni Mount's history groups, and yet the course has still been very enjoyable and informative.
Christine January 23, 2017
The courses are great and I hope to take as many as possible. Not having a deadline is nice and no final exams or papers to write!
Sandra October 21, 2016
I enjoyed all the modules immensely.
Samantha Bulmer October 1, 2017
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.
Tudor Guy Everyday Life of Medieval Folk December 3, 2015
I really enjoyed it. Well done.
Alan Johnson January 9, 2019
Loved it. Bring on more please
Debbie August 28, 2016
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.
Sandra Warfield September 20, 2017
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!!
Jennifer April 11, 2016
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
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!
Sarah Everyday Life of Medieval Folk December 9, 2015
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!
Virginia August 21, 2016
Very good indeed. Thanks a lot !!!
Newton July 21, 2017
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!
Deborah Harsen April 16, 2018
The content of the course was well organized. The reader did an excellent job.
Rich January 9, 2017
I found this course extremely informative on the Reformation. I thoroughly enjoyed the lesson in the history and the reasonings for the changes that were made at different times of, and in the name of, the Bible. I had not studied this area in the past and so many of the reasons, especially the initial reason, being that of Henry's battle in attempting to obtain his divorce was new and interesting to me. Very good course, in my opinion.
Michial Schmitt September 9, 2020
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
Sandra January 30, 2017
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.
Angela Blaydon September 18, 2017
Yes, I did enjoy it. I found the whole course interesting and informative.
Mary August 23, 2016
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.
Anthony Cox May 10, 2018
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.
Michael September 1, 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!
Laticia Wolters March 26, 2018
I really enjoyed the course! It was very informative.
Kimberly Finney May 8, 2018
Very enjoyable course!
Stacy Biccum September 20, 2017
I love everything about these courses! I love how they are taught and proceed! Thanks so much!!
Julie March 6, 2017
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.
Barbora Bell October 29, 2020
I loved this course and it reinforced my knowledge of Richard and the war of the roses
Karen Clewes July 22, 2020
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 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.
Susan Brand March 5, 2018
Very interesting and well presented.
Janet Avery October 23, 2019
I really did enjoy this course. I was a little skeptical because the Reformation isn't my favorite subject but I learned a lot.
