Learning History

This is my first post in this forum. I am sorry if this question has been asked and answered already. I love learning about history (anything pre 1700) and read/ watch as much as I can.

Does anyone know of any good home learning courses to take my interest to the next level. I studied history back when I was at school for A Level and wish I studied it at Uni. Unfortunately I work shifts including nights so it makes going to evening and weekend courses impossible.

If anyone has any suggestions then please let me know.

Threre are things called MOOC courses which are free - type in mooc and see what you come up with

Personally I just cheat and watch stuff on you tube - most old BBC programmes seem to be on there. For dark ages type in Michael Wood. There's also a very good Terry Jones series.

The difficulty I find is filling in the gap between uni level stuff and the Philippa Gregory approach.
