Personally, i will go with the neolithic to copper age. I always be fascinated with the earliest civilisation. In comparision my interest for the victorian era is more a consequence than a cause of my love for steampunk. No surprise then, than my inner universe came to be tainted with primevalism.

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Being an archaeologist with interest in prehistory, Neolithic/copper/bronze/iron are my major favourite time periods. However, I also have a liking for some parts of regency.

For me It is a toss-up betwtixt the Regency Era in the Americas, which covers from the F&I War to the peak of The Fur Trade
and the Americas in the Victorean Era. Both would require access to a proper Herbal Medicinalist and I would most likely be some sort of semi-hermit inventor or trader in order to be some sort of under-the-radar type.

NOW! Let's face it. I have a fridge, air conditioning and running clean water. And who could forget this box I'm typing on. It's connected to everyone else who has the same kind of box.

Interesting that (so far) there is only one vote for the Victorian era.  I wonder why that might be; we all love the Victorian aesthetic but wouldn't want to live back then, with all the baggage that comes with it, perhaps?  I know I don't.

Think it's because we in the NOW have a pretty good idea of the perils of living in previous times. I like the era/s I have chosen (for various reasons) but, unless I was pretty well protected medically, and had an unending supply of toilet paper, I probably wouldn't want to live then.

I've done roughing it, and it's not too bad. I think I could keep myself alive in the wilderness anytime after the invention of the rifled bore.
But, being a femme type person, I would quickly resort to homicide if dropped into the civilized parts of a Victorian world. Then again, if I had enough money, I could just be an eccentric recluse and not have to deal with with any of it except the parts I chose.

As far as favourites for study... ALL OF THEM.

Can't pick; I just love history too much.

(Wouldn't want to actually live during any of those time periods, mind you, unless I was traveling for research...)

There's no options for future time periods?  I'd vote for "5 minutes / years into the future."

Pretty sure I'd do well in the American Victorian era west. Haven't you seen "Lightning Jack"? We Aussies would rule the frontier.  Grin

hard to answer since my passions come from such diverse sources. I took a quiz on this on facebook and agree with the answer I got in that my favorite time period has not arrived yet. I want universal free wifi access everywhere, I want flying cars. I want tech under my skin.  But if everything had a Victorian visual style that would make me very very happy

My daughter asked this question at the weekend, problem is I have 2 time periods in mind:

1st; late bronze age/early Iron age Britain, pre Roman invasion, well organized tribal/clan living, with clear "skill" delineations. Just imagine living in a thatched round house, everything you want and nothing you don't need, just the basics and no more!

2nd: Early 20th century (the inter war years 1919-1939), and, to be of British Landed Gentry, think about it - you'd managed to survive the carnage of the trenches, have enough financial resources to survive "Black Friday" and, everything was up for grabs...speed records, distance records, etc.... (and not to mention Hem Hem the pick of the crop when it came to the young debutantes and fillies!)

Hmm.. normally I'd have voted 'now' because despite everything the now is pretty damn good.

However, I voted for the near future because if we all work at it then tomorrow has the potential to be even greater than today.

Probably the 1970s when the term was popular.   MySpace had  a retro kudos button.
