Do you have a favorite historical period?

Explained by TheobaldHospitaller...

What historical period do you like to read about the most? Would you ever want to live in that period? My three favorite historical periods are the Roman Empire (1st century BC-4th century), the 1960s America (JFK, LBJ, Nixon, Vietnam, Civil Rights), and the High Middle Ages (1100-1400). Really, there isn't a time or place that I'm not interested in, but if I had to pick three, these would be my choices. I'd rather not live during them, though. Too violent and too tumultuous.

A lot of different periods.

I wouldn't want to live in any of them that didn't have electricity and/or health care..

Chicago during Prohibition. Would have loved to have lived then!
But I read almost all genre's so it's hard to pick one.

I'll have to go with mid 60's to mid 70's. While it was a time of turmoil both politically and with the war, I think we were experiencing now freedoms and ways of expression. That, and the music was great.

One?... No. All of history is interesting to me. Some eras more than others, though, yes. Just before, during, and after WW II facinates me, as do the Biblical times, and of course, American history. I think I may have fit in during the pioneer days (despite not having traveled farther west than the eastern portion of Wisconsin), as well as the time before the "discovery" of America and during the Medieval times. The Enlightenment Period would have been pretty cool, too. Really, all times are interesting to me in some respect. All in all, though, I am glad I grew up when and where I did.

I am kind of fond of the present!
Other eras certainly have their appeal. But, they all had their down sides too.

Maybe I'm just not adventurous enough.
