If I could visit any time period (and if I were white and male), it would be Victorian England.
It was a period of great change, a period of endings. It was the last time the monarchy had any significant powers. It was the beginning of the end of slavery. It was a period where the world was beginning to have a sense of social responsibility for their actions. Where people were more willingly to look after the poor instead of blaming them for their circumstances.
For me the main reason I would want to live in Victorian England is because of the novels. The thought of being alive when Charlotte Bronte, Charles Dickens and George Eliot were alive is absolutely amazing. I could just imagine the dinner parties and the conversations that could have been had.
Also ice cream was invented in the Victorian Era. Honestly, what more could I want. Books, horses, conversations, an end to slavery and ice cream. Bring on the Victorian era.
Thank you for reading.
