Sometimes people (students, family, my spouse, etc.) ask if I could go back in time to antiquity, if I would? That is, if the Doctor showed up on my doorstep with his TARDIS and asked where and when I would like to go, would I visit the people I study for a living?
I always answer absolutely NOT. I have many reasons why I don't want to meet the people or visit the ancient societies that I study. One reason is this.
