I have a small question.

Would 1984 be in the industrial revolution?:)

Nope. A few hundred years back. :p

You're looking at pre-ninteenth century.

Might I ask why you need to know? :p

My guess is you're writing an essay on the book?

I'm writing a quick story about an adventure relating to the industrial revolution time period.:)

Then why did you ask if a specific year was inluded, rather than just asking what the period was? Or, better still, just Google it :p

I did google it and it said 18th and 19th century, I wanted to know if this specific year was within the time area so I could incorporate a certain character.:)

I've got it figured out now though.:cool:

Well, 1984 is in the 20th century, not the 18th or 19th, so. . .

:p

HOLLY CRAP.:O

I thought the 18th century was the 1800s and the 19th century was the 1900s.:p

Wow...:/

Wow...:/

18th C = 1700s
19th C = 1800s

Just take the first two digits and and 1 to them, and you'll get the current century. :p

Well, for now..

As a rough guide, the Industrial Revolution had no big hair and synthesizers.

I'm shocked at how someone old enough to write a story set in the Industrial Revolution doesn't know this.

That's a bit mean :p I didn't know until last year either, of course that is what you would assume up until someone tells you different.

Whilst I'm aware I live in the 21st Century. I always get mixed up thinking the 1900's was the 19th Century, it's the number 19 in the year that's to blame :o

I never said I was writing an award winning novel or anything.:p

It's easy to remember if you think of when it started: the first century goes from year 1 to 100, so 101 to 200 makes the second and so on. ;)

That's just it. What I said wasn't meant as an insult to those who don't know, but more than anything, it's to their teachers. I was taught this VERY early on in school, I don't know how the year translates in english system but I was really young, so it's very surprising to me that teenagers and pre-teens don't know this.
