    I've received offers for a masters in Medieval History at King's College London, Durham and Edinburgh, ideally I'm planning on continuing on with a PhD after my masters and have a general research interest in elite medieval women, but I'm at a complete loss over which offer to accept.

    Anyone got any advice or opinions?

    Just off the top of my head makes me think Durham would be good because it's all old and started in the medieval times and the castle would be really inspiring and you would almost feel as if you were back in time!

    London on the other hand has all been worn down and built on but the old city still remains such as the medieval wall at St Paul's cathedral and the ruins on Gresham street and London is London and would have magnificent resources to hand with various archives etc.

    Obviously, Durham is ranked higher than King's which might be a deciding factor.

    Edinburgh is great but these two come first for their reasons as I see it.

    ................
    Which department has more academics likely to be able to support a PhD in that area?
