This was an excellent class. I learned so many new things about the Medici. Ms. Morris has a superb voice and style making for a wonderful experience. Many thanks!

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
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.

I am enjoying the course [Everyday Life] immensely!

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!

I enjoyed all the modules immensely.

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
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!!

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 enjoyed it very much, thanks.

It was wonderful

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 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.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this course, and plan on taking many more from you!
Amanda November 14, 2016
This course was very enjoyable to do, its great to learn exactly how medieval and tudor women lived and what they had to do in every day lives. Would recommend to anyone interested in the era.
Luisa Short January 18, 2021
Organized, factual and quite fascinating. I loved the narrator’s beautiful accent. Listened not for details but for general new information.
Virginia Dane May 17, 2020
I have loved this course, Richard is such a fascinating man.

I really enjoyed this course and learned a lot!
Francesca January 29, 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
It was great
Renee November 24, 2016
I really enjoyed the course! It was very informative.
Kimberly Finney May 8, 2018
I really enjoyed this course. The Medici Family were quite an interesting lot
Teresa Brodrick March 3, 2020
Very interesting course.
Heather McNicholas April 5, 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
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.
Kimberly Finney November 23, 2020
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.
Caroline June 23, 2016
I have really enjoyed this course. I knew a fair amount before, but there were so many little details and case studies, it has given me real insight into the lives of medieval people.
Jen Morgan March 28, 2021
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
Once again, another informative course.
Jennifer Brown March 17, 2021

Absolutely fascinating - I have learned so much.

Really enjoyed it
Angharad Yeo May 17, 2021
I absolutely loved it, well written and totally enjoyable!
Julie Leddy October 6, 2021
Another enjoyable course! No criticisms!
Laticia Wolter May 8, 2018
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!
Sandra Warfield November 13, 2017
I always enjoyed reading about this historical period. I found the course interesting and learned many interesting facts.
Francine Friedland December 15, 2020
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
A great and worthwhile course. I will study more on Medieval Courses for certain!
Tonya Osborne-Blake October 30, 2017
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!
Deborah Harsen June 29, 2018
Extremely enjoyable and informative, thank you.
Wendy August 8, 2017
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.
Kimberly April 18, 2017
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!!
Ivana January 10, 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
This course was very interesting. It really gave insight into what life was like for women in this time.
Jaime Saranczak April 5, 2020
This course was very informative. So interesting to see the long term effects of Henry's actions
Leticia Wolters February 8, 2018
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
