New Giveaway! Full set of The Last Kingdom series!


Hey everybody!

I’m delighted to announce the launch of our very first giveaway! This giveaway will automatically enter all paid subscribers into a raffle to win the full, 13-volume set of Bernard Cornwell’s The Last Kingdom series, which trace the adventures of Uhtred of Bebbanburg, a Northumbrian noble, from the arrival of the Great Heathen Army through the Battle of Brunanburh. The historical fiction series is a global bestseller and has been adapted by the BBC and Netflix into a popular TV show, also entitled The Last Kingdom.

The rules for entry are simple. Each paid member will be automatically entered into the raffle: basic subscribers will receive one ticket, while pro subscribers will receive two. There is no further action required for subscribers to get their tickets – just subscribe and you will automatically be enrolled.

There is, however, another way in which one can enter the raffle without a paid subscription (this is required by US law). If one refers a different person to the site and he or she becomes a paid member, then the referrer will get two tickets as well. That, however, will not happen automatically – either the referrer or the referee will need to email me at and I will manually give them the tickets.

Entry into the raffle is open through 11:59 PM, May 31, 2021. Drawing will take place shortly thereafter, and the winner will be contacted. In order to qualify for the prize, the winner must still be a subscriber to HistoryCourses. In the case of someone whose tickets came from referring someone else, that person must still be subscribed. In the event that a ticketholder doesn’t qualify, a new winner will be drawn.

Shipping will be paid for within the Continental US. All local laws apply.
