I don't think this is entirely true. There are a lot of us early period
people. Even if I were to change personas, I would stay early period. The
challenge of ferreting out information on early periods will always appeal to
a certain segment.
I was wandering through Borders History section and mentioned to Tangwen that
it would be so easy to have a post 1066 persona, (looking at all the Life
in... books, and others) and she replied that it would be too easy and
boring. I agree.
Also, where else can you have a persona of a single woman that isn't anyone's
property, can own property, or can be divorced? I specifically looked for a
culture that treated women (their own women, at least) better than your
average medieval housewife.
