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!

I really enjoyed this course and learned a lot!
Francesca January 29, 2016
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!!!
Laurie January 7, 2016
I loved the course,I didn't do so good 😞, I'm not good with dates, (lol!) but course was interesting.

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
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 enjoyed all the modules immensely.
Samantha Bulmer October 1, 2017
I loved this course. I enjoyed listening to each lesson and I learned so much! It was a privilege and a pleasure to listen to the lovely and clear narration. I intend to take further courses. Thank you for all the hard work it must have taken to put this all together!
Valerie Canosa October 1, 2017
Absolutely fascinating - I have learned so much.
Wendy A April 18, 2017
I really did enjoy the course.
Mary October 1, 2016
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
Really interesting, thank you.
Wendy April 22, 2017
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
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 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
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
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 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
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
I have done other courses through Medieval Courses. I enjoyed this one and felt that it was well paced and informative.
Alison Riseley November 6, 2017
Fantastic, very easy to listen too and knowledgeable. I will be buying more!
Rita Elefteriou October 30, 2017
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
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.
Sandra March 23, 2017
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
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
The content of the course was well organized. The reader did an excellent job.
Rich January 9, 2017
I did enjoy the course, thank you!
Diana December 21, 2016
I have loved this course, Richard is such a fascinating man.
Wendy May 2, 2016
I thoroughly enjoyed the course.
Andrea June 7, 2017
I absolutely loved it!!! Honestly it was so informative and I loved reading about the Borgias. They're a family that have always fascinated me. So! :). Another amazing course, I can't wait to do more :).
Charlotte June 30, 2017
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 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
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
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
It was great
Renee November 24, 2016
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
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 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
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
Very good indeed. Thanks a lot !!!
Newton July 21, 2017
I have thoroughly enjoyed this course, and plan on taking many more from you!
Amanda November 14, 2016
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
I am enjoying the course [Everyday Life] immensely!
Ann January 6, 2016
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
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
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 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
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.
