Which five events in history would you choose to experience in person, and why?
I'd like to have been there when Boudicca fought off the Romans (the time she won), she's one of my heroes.
A meeting of the Hellfire club to see if my theory about them not being the Satanic nutcases they were reported to be (I often suspect they were actually the Historical equivalent of Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin etc, and just spread loads of crazy rumours about themselves to shock people)
Greyfriar's Kirkyard with Mary Shelly when she started writing Frankenstein's Monster , mostly because I want to know where she sat.
Any point in Ancient Sarmatian history. Sarmatian women were supposedly the inspiration for the Amazons (a LOT of tombs of their woman have been found full of weapons and armour) , I absolutely fell in love with the idea of the Amazons when I was around 7-8 and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys was on TV. An entire race of women that can do stuff other than making dinner? Awesome!
On the beach when Queen Elizabeth 1st made her famous speech "I may have the body of a woman, but I have the heart and stomach of a man". Hopefully she didn't mean her dad's stomach... Or come to think of it his heart, I mean that couldn't have been in very good health now could it?
