If you had a time machine - what historic events would you like to see?

You'd have a fair tab the next day, the battle took place at a site named (afterwards of course) 'Battle'. One of the female relatives of the victor (some French bloke, can't remember his name right now) built Battle Abbey in thanks for his victory. I have actually visited the site which just happened to be on the 'something, something' anniversary where they had a re-enactment, and I stood and thought "The f***ing damage I could do with a section of mortars!!"

Go here and see: 1066 Battle of Hastings, Abbey and Battlefield | English Heritage
The Normans were not French, They were first and second generation scandanavians, hence the name, Norman (north man).

We got invaded by vikings, not the frogs.

The Normans were the land owners, a few, and they had Breton and other French aristocracy in their fold. The foot soldiers - the majority - were French.
 
I'd go back to my birth. Apparently the doctor refused to skelp my arse because it would sully such a perfect being.

I'd want to take a photo of the expression on the face of the young Gurkha PC who told two numbers to pick up a dead Terry for ID purposes.

And they pitched with his head.

Im not reading the whole thread, but I'll assume that many would have grand plans or noble ideals but would end up travelling to see an upcoming lottery number result before heading back to buy a ticket :)

As per above, I havent read the thread but would be shocked if I'm the first to say this :)
 
Tranquility Base, July 19th 1969 with a Union Flag and a full English picnic (remains of which to be left in place).
Along with a bag of coal and a crumpled copy of The Times dated 1886, I trust?
 
I'd like to see Hitlers mum impregnated by a Jew spawning Hitler, and then get Jeremy Kyle transported to the bunker in 1945 to break the bad news to make an alternative Downfall meme video

You're going the wrong way.
No they wouldn't be!
The premise is that you already have the time machine, ergo it's been invented and built.

1651 to tell Jan van Riebeck that Madagascar would make a better site for a re-victualling station.
You've just read this, you little genocidist.

"At least 24 people have died and more than 130 have been infected with plague across the country, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO).

Plague is endemic to the country, but “contrary to past outbreaks, this one is affecting larger urban areas and ports, which increases the risk of person-to-person transmission”, said WHO spokesperson Tarik Jasarevic.

Among the reported cases, almost 60 were the more common bubonic plague, including seven deaths. More than 70 – including 17 deaths – are suspected to be pneumonic plague.

Ten cities were reporting pneumonic cases, including the capital, Antananarivo, increasing chances of the disease spreading.

Plague is typically spread through the bite of infected fleas, frequently carried by rats, causing bubonic plague.

Symptoms include painful, swollen lymph nodes, called bubos, as well as fever, chills and coughing.

Pneumonic plague is more virulent and is an advanced form characterised by a severe lung infection. The infection can be transmitted from person to person via airborne droplets.

The incubation period is short, and an infected person may die within 12 to 24 hours.

An estimated 400 cases of plague are reported in Madagascar every year.

Outbreaks typically occur during the rainy season as “the rains drive the rodents out”, said Daniel Bausch, director of the UK Public Health Rapid Support Team.

Launched in 2016, this team consists of clinicians, scientists and academics deployed to tackle outbreaks of disease around the world within 48 hours.

The government has mobilised resources to spray schools and other public places to fight fleas and rodents.

People have also been lining up at pharmacies in the capital – some wearing face masks – to get medication or protection from infection."

or it's going to be invented in the future, but having gone back in time to meet us today (ish) allowing us to travel back or forward in time regardless of when it's going to be/has been built
