Which era do you personally find more interesting? Classical Greece and Rome; or Medieval Europe? I decided to make this multiple choice since I'm sure there's plenty of people here who are interested in both.

I like both eras a lot, but if I had to pick one it would be medieval. The thought of knights and castles is too enticing.

Definitely both. But in more specific areas, for example, video games, definitely Classical, at least for the Total War games. The game play style makes more sense with classical armies. For films, I prefer medieval, no doubt, Kingdom of Heaven is one of the most gorgeous gorgeous movies ever. I watch it just for the scenery.

Medieval for me, although not for research purposes (I'll stick to my early modern/modern history for that!). I have studied Classics before, of course, but that was some time ago. My Latin is quite rusty by now.

Classical...
The ancient civilisations just have that little something that makes them more fascinating than the medieval era.

While I do find the medieval era interesting, I must admit to having more of an affinity for the classical period. Always seems more fascinating to me.

I used to be very passionate about the classical world and I still am in some ways but I am way more interested about the Medieval period currently.
