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

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.

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
Renee November 24, 2016
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.

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 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
I thoroughly enjoyed the course.
Andrea June 7, 2017
Really enjoyed this course
Christine Houghton April 3, 2018
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 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
I am enjoying the course [Everyday Life] immensely!
Ann January 6, 2016
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
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.
E J December 16, 2016
Very interesting information on specific criminals as well as more details about the formation of different police forces and origins of uniform and equipment. All in all a very informative course, which I enjoyed very much.
Angela Blaydon October 30, 2017
Fascinating, thank you so much.
Wendy Ahl January 29, 2018
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.
Jennifer June 7, 2017
Yes, I did enjoy it. I found the whole course interesting and informative.
Mary August 23, 2016
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 August 4, 2017
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
I LOVED the course! All you need is a computer and you're set. I like that you can keep the transcripts from each module. I think the parts I enjoyed the most were the examples of 'ever day' people. Instead of just focusing on royalty there were countless examples of commoners, middle class people, higher ranking people and of course royalty. Loved that!
Sarah January 5, 2016
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,
November 24, 2016
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 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!
Deborah February 13, 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
Extremely enjoyable and informative, thank you.
Wendy August 8, 2017
enjoyed the course
very interesting learnt a lot
Caroline Sprigg March 15, 2018
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 did enjoy the course.
Mary October 1, 2016
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
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.
Deborah Harsen March 26, 2018
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
Teri October 18, 2016
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 really enjoyed this course. It was easy to understand and just enough information in each unit to explore the topic and I never felt as if I was inundated with facts and dates to make it too confusing. A good gentle introduction for beginners. I recommend this course for those who are just casually interested in medieval history or as a beginning foundation for those looking to be more invested in this topic.
Amy June 20, 2016
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.
Libby May 3, 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
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 enjoyed all the modules immensely.
Samantha Bulmer October 1, 2017
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!
Jerice March 7, 2017
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
The content of the course was well organized. The reader did an excellent job.
Rich January 9, 2017
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.
Sally February 8, 2017
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!
Janine April 25, 2016
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'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
Really interesting, thank you.
Wendy April 22, 2017
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
This course was incredibly informative, it told me so much about the crime and punishment law that I did not know, it was awesome.
Charlotte July 28, 2017
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 loved the course,I didn't do so good 😞, I'm not good with dates, (lol!) but course was interesting.
