Far from being a time of darkness, the Middle Ages was an essential period in the grand narrative of Western history. But what was it like to actually live in those extraordinary times? Now you can find out.These 36 lectures provide a different perspective on the society and culture of the Middle Ages: one that entrenches you in the daily human experience of living during this underappreciated era.

I loved this lecture series and will probably listen to it again. Dr Armstrong does a great job of framing her descriptions and explanations so you don't have to remember every detail as you go. I feel like I have a much better understanding of the medieval period and the lead into the early modern period.
