The Top Ten
19th Century Britain was the most technologically advanced and civilised place on Earth, London was seen as the capital of the world and Britons boasted a Navy which ruled the waves and an Empire which the Sun never set. The Industrial Revolution allowed Britain to have a head start over the rest of the world in terms of Industrial produce and development of modern technology. With very few immigrants, an excellent economy and social norms, it was very easy to get a job in 19th Century Britain. New influential medical procedures were beginning to take place at the time which totally transformed health care and allowed Britons to have a much higher life expectancy by the end of the century.
Beautiful architecture, beautiful fashion, beautiful scenery, very very beautiful. (Though there's unfortunately also un-beautiful slavery)

This period is mainly known for it's Wild West culture, much of the USA was very rural and uninhabited at this point in time and there were still hundreds of thousands of Native Americans living in the States during this time.

The 2nd Century AD is considered to be the height of the Roman Empire's economic prosperity and military might.

Britain at this stage was already an advanced agricultural powerhouse in Europe, they had sophisticated farming methods which kept the population of Britain at the time at an estimated 1-2 million. Britain wasn't united at this stage, various Iron Age tribes ruled parts of Britain. Britain was still very Pagan at this stage and still allegedly practiced religious sacrifice to their Gods. On a more pleasant side, Britons looked after their natural environment at this point and had discovered geometry and aligned various temples such as Stonehenge in line with the stars, presumably to appease so they could get a better understanding of the heavens and please their Gods. Britain had already discovered Iron at this stage in history and many Britons painted themselves blue with woad.
Ancient Greece during this time gave rise to democracy and deep philosophical thinking, as well as Ancient technologies that we still can't replicate even to this day.

The Capital of the Eastern Roman Empire, Constantinople is considered to be the most technologically advanced and economically prosperous place in Europe during the Medieval period by many historians.
Throwback to see why everyone is so obsessed.
Visit the years of the 1990s I was too young to remember.
Or I have a stronger memory of the 2000s being a teen.
