One of my roommates was a history major.  She took medeival history while
we were pair, and her reading resourses were indeed excellent.  Her
professor had a hand-out that was a basic flow-chart that helped you
determine if it was OK to have sex in period if you were a good Catholic.
 I feel good about the accuracy of the sheet.  I feel it's much more
interesting (and relevant) than iron underwear.

Of course, my last history teacher was a member of my shire.
