Queen Victoria ruled England from 1837 to 1901, presiding over an era of unprecedented technological and social change, as well as an era of unrelenting horrors and human cruelty. Sure, your hipsters and your steampunks may love cribbing Victorian style, choosing to remember the pennyfarthings and top hats that look so fun on a Pinterest page, but let's face it: in those days if you weren't a member of the aristocracy, your life was probably unremittingly awful from start to all-too-brief finish. Disease, filth, and poverty were the norm, with people turning to whatever means of support that they could find - even if those means ended up being totally nasty. Victorian occupations usually tended to involve doing something that no human should have to do, for unreasonable hours, until it killed you.

How is this age restricted
I would love to see a video about the Victorian era weapons history! :D
It's too bad that they don't use chimney sweeps like they used in Mary Poppins
My wife who I did not know was listening looks over from her computer and says " Ah, yes minecraft shows children still crave the mines" 🤣😂
if i was a pure collector...why not just empty your own pot every week and make money
so the chimney sweeps stuck up there and they just light the fire? mad
Two fellow men with a shovel and a shortage of decency 😂
For those who are going to "um actually" about leeches being used he said there is no "medicinal" benefit. There IS a "medical" benefit with leeches just like maggots.
There is a difference between the words even though some use them interchangably (don't get me started on the use of decimated)
POV; yk the match job because of Enola 2
Can you please feature an episode on Ladies in Waiting
I have a phobia of getting stuck in small spaces so being a chimney sweep sounds like an absolute nightmare.
This channel has some really interesting videos. Only found it a few days ago
pure collectors collected human shit too...
I'm diagnose with cancer, i have just 2 years to live, i've never been this scared to die, i'm just 35, i cry everyday wishing for a miracle to happen. i don't know why im saying this here. put me in your prayers.
Leeches DO have medicinal benefits and are used by board certified doctors to this day. They're often used to assist in reattaching severed fingers.
Nymphomania was a thing in Victorian era to require a "cure" for it...???
Tosher….. absolutely not. Not for me. I rather eat all the phosphorus
Leeches actually have some medical benefits! We still use them (albeit in rare cases) in hospitals to this day. And many anticoagulants were developed by studying their saliva.
