Games, Leisure and History
I believe you can learn quite a lot about the past and present by studying games as it teaches you what the people enjoyed, what sort of materials they had to make games (e.g. Plastic, wood, metal etc.), how their games and lifestyle can relate to how much free time they had (e.g. games that take a long time suggest they had a lot of free time) and how their games relate to their certain social groups (e.g. a well-made and expensive game would belong to a much higher social group compared to a small wooden toy).
I think that doing this subject can teach me how different life was in the past compared to how advanced and complex it is now.
