I recently came across the site called Futurelearn which is a new site that offers free courses provided by established universities. It's certainly worth a look if you want to expand your knowledge a little but there is one course that immediately stood out.
Thanks Pieter...joined up today for the Richard the Third course, sounds really interesting although I'm apparently 2 weeks behind as it began on 16th Feb. !
Pity York Uni couldn't step up in a similar way...we all know Richard was a York boy and burying him in Leicester is a bit of a kick in the cod piece for the old feller. I can't imagine a more perfect setting for his burial than York Minster...oh well.
The previous ones are excellent with a good overview of the time period. Just remember it's a course about late 15th century England, not a course about Richard III, although they have updated it to include the new discoveries.
