People who are anonymous and whose lives are usually ignored in traditional historical accounts are no less important than more prominent individuals in influencing the flow of events. These ordinary, but often heroic, people are the focus of this course. Each of the 48 lectures looks at history from a nontraditional perspective, that of the weak and marginalized-- the poor, sick, disabled, and elderly, as well as the refugees, slaves, women, children, and common soldiers.

I was completely engrossed by this series! Robert Garland's delivery enhanced by his British humor was delightful.

I was really looking forward to this series but overall, it just wasn't that interesting...the instructor stands...and stands.. around telling us pretty much EXACTLY what the included book already says and there aren't enough visuals to compensate for the "talking heads" boredom of this...too bad because clearly the prof is smart and funny at times but it just wasn't worth the slog.
