So, I decide that money is the root of all evil and wondered what it would of been like to have traded for all you needed. Unfortunately you have to go back pretty far to get away from some form of currency. Hence, this thread. If you could live in any time period, era or age, what would it be, where would it be and what would your occupation or skill be? For me it is the Iron Age around 500BC. In Ireland with the Celts of course. They let women fight in battle, were matrilineal, women and children had rights, women had voices in political decisions and could rule. And of course they had beautiful artwork and jewelry. My occupation would be making jewelry mostly and since it is probably connected weapons. But, not necessarily the blacksmith as I would just want to do really intricate, beautiful stuff. LOL! Disclaimer: I am not a history major or anything of the sort. I have always enjoyed reading about the Celts and what information I have listed might be wrong. But I don't care! So, if you feel the need to give me a history lesson, go ahead. But don't be offended if I choose to ignore you.
