Ha! I suddenly realized that, Shakespeare aside, mine tend to revolve around the theme of “battle” or “submission”. What does that say about me? :oI'm right there with you about Arthur. To able to see what the man (some say it was Ambosius) who inspired that legend was really like. Of course, the Arthurian stuff is a weird mix of Celtic, Anglo-Saxon and French tales, so it ends up being a bit of a muddle. I'd say that being able to visit those villas would be incredible. If it were any one building, I'd prefer Durham Cathedral, right after it was built. I mean, the size and scope of the thing TODAY are incredible. What must it have looked like surrounded by a bunch of Anglo-Saxon timber houses?
