so what time period would you want to time travel if you could and why.

I personally love the 18thc. Still a wee rough for women in that era, but love it all the same for many reasons.

What about you?

Good thread Celtic Rose..

The late 1200 to 1300's. Willam Wallace is why...no question about that one. lol..
I thought it was still tough on women these days. And we think we have it bad..nothing in comparrison.

oh darn this is a VERY hard question I love lots and lots of times in the past. for me it's a split between the Medieval/Rennisance age or the 1770s when the british and Americans were fighting because its really such a historically rich era. Or maybe Ancient Rome.

Thanks for all your replies. Honestly it is a very difficult question for me as well. While I may be an 18thc re-enactor and know a wee bit about life back then. It is one thing to re-enact, another to actually live it from day to day.

I also love the Renaissance period as well. Of course I would love to be part of the Queen's court and wear those beautiful dresses. But then I think I would love to live in that period no matter what..............as long as no one turned against me and made recommendation that my head be cut off. giljotiini.gif unsure.gif

I guess living in another time would be ok, if you had someone to carry your bathwater, wash your clothes and cook for you. I would surely want to live out in the country, in the cities you'd have to be careful of catching some disease caused by poor sanitation.

I wouldn't want to be stuck in any perticular time period, but I'd like to visit the 17th and 18th centuries. I still like the idea of taking a radio transmitter back to about then, and some receivers, and hiding the receivers all over say London (solar powered of course), playing Irish resistance tunes!

I would kind of like to visit 4th Century Ireland, simply because so little is known about it, other than being one of the few areas where the Romans do not appear to have ventured in any meaningful way.

I'll be the oddball..I'd like to travel to and perhaps even live forever in the late 1940's, or very early 1950's. This was one of the most fantastically satisfying periods in history for anyone in the USA. The economy was great. Men and women knew their place in society (sorry...there is a role for each). There was less rich and poor class and more middle class. Everything was cheaper, percentage wise, compared to your average income. People appeared to be more family oriented. The music was even good! Look at movies/videos from this time period and there were even far fewer over-weight people! Cars were cool and solid. This was one heck of a good time to be alive!

To show you what a coward I am. I would like to live in dfferent time periods for only a certain amount of days. See what it was like and then choose which eras I like best and live then! So far I like the 21st c, but I so love the 18th c as well.

Sigh...if I could only work out a plan where I could live in both time periods for six months out of the year. Kind of like our winter visitors do here in Arizona. Does that sound weird? unsure.gif

For me I would time travel to the 5th century B.C.E.,The Golden Age of Greece. Also the mid-twelve to mid- thirteenth century Scotland.My ancestors fought with Wallace and The Bruce and I wish I could have been there with them.

My first impulse was to jump on thecelticgiraffe's response, but I'll be good and apply it to questions about the entire forum question. As a psychology and communications person, I'd definitely be interested in hearing:
1. what those roles were the sexes are supposed to know
2. when they changed

From everyone else, I'd love to hear (especially the women here becrying the treatment of their gender in previous centuries) which aspects of these roles have changed to the modern day more to your likings.

Sorry, but a blanket statement like that as fact is begging to be challenged.
