    All the ancient stuff, like:
    Ancient Egypt
    Ancient China
    Mesopotamia
    Aztec

    It's so interesting because it's so far removed from what we know today, and all the traditions and religions and how they built things, everything - SO INTERESTING!

    The Aztecs aren't ancient. Balliol and Merton have been around longer than they have. There are pubs in England that were open before the Aztecs.

    I am a big fan of ancient times, be it the Romans, Egypt or Mesopotamia. Those cultures changed the living of humans in a deceisive way, those were the first step to civilization.

    Another period I like is the industrial revolution, with the miseries at the very beginning and later reforms from time to time to guarantee a better living standard for majority of people.

    Both World Wars, and the late colonisation period (basically the European Scramble for Africa).

    So everything from 1880 to about 1950.

    Mid-late 18th century (i.e. around the time the Industrial Revolution began), to the end of the Victorian era, because this was a period where the country started to see economic and social change. It was the birth of modern Britain.

    I only studied History at GCSE level, and I found the American West depth study 1840-1895 very interesting. Mainly because it was fascinating to see how the country developed through farming techniques and construction techniques etc. Oh, because we got to learn about railroads

    I don’t know if it classes more as an art period rather than a historical one, but I find it interesting all the same
