As good as the Teaching Company

I have listened to all of the Teaching Company's lectures on the Middle Ages, and these are just as good, if not better. Professor Freedman's lectures are entertaining, informative, and accessible. Thank you to Yale OCS and Professor Freedman for making these available. Maybe the High Middle Ages next term?

The best history lectures

Very lucid professor, I was addicted to the entire course. My view of the middle ages has changed, as well as many misconceptions.

Really great

I'm at the last few chapters now having listed to almost all the course since last night, really interesting, clear sound, very good teacher.
One issue that came up is that something mixed up and chapters 10 and 11 are actualy the same recording, it'll be nice if it could be fixed.
