    Wouldn’t mind going back in time to the dinosaur stretch of time … sit up high & take in the view atop a T-Rex or something like that. Thanks.

    I without a doubt would go back Egypt and watch how the great pyramids were build and find out what purpose the square diagonal shafts were for.

    I like stories set in Victorian England so I would like to go there – but only if I belong to the Upper Classes! Others led terrible lives.

    I would love to go back to 1189 the time of the Third Crusade, King Richard of England, and the battle to re-capture Jerusalem. It’s a time in history that has always appealed to me.

    I would go back to the beginning of high school and not be such a f*** up. I was a good student and all my grades were pretty good, but I got kicked out for being in numerous fights. I had the childish mentality to fight everyone giving me even the slightest problem. It was really dumb now that I look back on it.

    I would go back to the 1960s – the time of love and peace. But, especially, it was the time of optimism.

    I would love to go back to several different times to see certain events but for the sake of argument I’ll go with either Ancient Egypt (I’ve always been fascinated with it, back to my early school days) or medieval Europe. So much innovation throughout both those eras and while times may have been (significantly) harder knowing what I know now would make it all the more interesting.

    Either the time of the Mayans or the Roman empire. Incredible architects and I’d love to learn how the heck they did it!

    I would go back to the glory days of the Pharoahs, provided I was a member of the nobility and not whe working-class. The history from that period really transformed the future of man. I’ve always been fascinated with Egyptian history from that period. Perhaps I was a member of Egyptian royalty in a previous life – Nefertiti, maybe?? 🙂
