Dr. M. chose the artifacts thoughtfully to illuminate different eras and historical events, from pre-history through the turn of the 20th century. The pictures and videos were excellent, and covered, among other areas, art, archeology, history, literature and human interactions. He used the artifacts as a starting point to discuss the relevant era. There was always time for questions, and if he didn't know the answer, he would come back the next week with an answer. For me, it was "appointment zoom."
This course exceeded expectations! The artifacts were a jumping off point for a discussion of Scotland at that particular time period and all tied together throughout the 10 weeks. Dr Montgomery is an excellent lecturer, well prepared, interesting and interested in his subject and his attendees.
An excellent course with someone who is interesting and knowledgeable. I wanted to know more about my Scottish ancestry. His selection of topics varied but all were done in an interesting manner. The frustration was that I needed to view many lectures that were recorded so that I could not ask the questions that I wanted to. I signed up for more of his lectures
I truly enjoyed Dr. Montgomery's approach to present a different historical object each session, and then describe not only the object and its significance but also how it fit into the broader context of Scottish history. He is a knowledgeable and personable instructor. I highly recommend this program to anyone who has an interest in Scotland.
