If you had to live in 5 different centuries, which would you choose and in what order from most to least favorite?

*You still know everything from your life before.


for me...
1.1st Century (Meet Jesus)
2.15th (Discover the Americas before Columbus)

3-5.6th (Meet Mohammed), 20th (Kill Hitler) and 16th or 17th.

Don't you think that you should add the location? The 2nd Century in Rome would have been quite different than, say, in ancient America.

I voted for the 1rst century - Caesar Augustus and the Classical Era of Rome, plus Jesus and the start of Christianity, plus I would have loved to meet on the the great woman in English history, Queen Boadicea. The first century also saw the eruption of Vesuvius and the burial of Pompeii.

Other centuries of interest would be 7th (Charlemagne), and the 14th and 15th (Leonardo De Vinci, Michaelango, the Rennaissance.

19th! Railroads, telephones, electricity, steamships. No bigger changes in human life before. Or after. The beginning of the modern world!
