Free online courses about Medieval Spain

Year of past OR future Camino
Camino Del Estrecho, Ruta Fray Leopoldo,
Vía Serrana, Camino Francés
(I'm not sure what forum this belongs in, so feel free to move it.) EdX and Coursera are offering three free online courses about medieval Spain this spring that might be of interest to those walking caminos. All the courses can be taken online at any time of day the fits your own personal schedule. I’ve taken one of the courses in this series before and found it very interesting. At the end of the course you have the experience of translating actual medieval documents.

I hope you'll enjoy it, Introibo. Professor Martínez-Dávila's enthusiasm about his subject makes the course all the more enjoyable. The paleography projects at the end of the course give you a feeling of being closely connected with the time period as you try to puzzle out the meaning of the medieval documents. For anyone walking through Burgos, it would add a wonderful layer of meaning to the day.
