Tucked away within the romantic landscapes of Europe, a remarkable range of beautifully preserved medieval cities and towns invites discovery - time capsules of history where you can stroll the cobbled streets of another time; savor the treasures of palaces, stately mansions, soaring cathedrals, and grand civic centers; and walk the mighty bastions and ramparts that once defended them.
Now, in The Great Tours: Experiencing Medieval Europe, award-winning Professor Kenneth R. Bartlett of the University of Toronto invites you to travel through time to the golden ages of 12 of Europe’s most beautiful medieval cities. In 24 lectures, you’ll discover the sights, sounds, and smells of teeming markets and mercantile centers, royal feasts and ritual, dramatic military engagements, magnificent religious pageantry, and the many colorful layers of daily medieval life.

Bartlett is brilliant
Love the lecturer! A passionate, informed and fascinating lecture series. Makes medieval Europe come alive. About to visit France and Germany and this series of lectures has added huge value for me in understanding the places we are visiting. (Tbh it’s even set the agenda for where we are visiting) My wife and I listened to Professor Bartletts lecture series on the Renaissance before we went to Italy and it added so much to our trip. If you’re travelling in Europe or interested in what it was like to be alive in the medieval period get this series.
