Post subject:  The eighteenth century on YouTube

I was browsing an article about how YouTube is now one of the top sites for research. Which makes sense - I recently had a minor operation and was able to find a video of the exact procedure on YouTube.

So, what's out there on the eighteenth century? Quite a bit:

Including everything from actors talking about preparing for films to a lecture by the much-respected Robert Darnton.

Sound of a harpsichord is wonderful! Its sound gives a particular feeling for me.

It turns out there's also some fun stuff on Gaumont's archives site, including this clip of a play with Cagliostro:

You will have to register on the site though to view any clips.

Both of them are lovely videos! Für Elise, I like this melody by Beethoven.

The person who posted this calls himself "Fersen90":

Think he's a Marie-Antoinette fan? :o

Lots of other links here (at right) on the lady, though frustratingly uncredited in many cases.

I don’t like the music but I find the video ok. I would prefer classic considering the time and theme.

How about a cartoon version of Marie-Antionette's death?

Hm… I don’t know what to think. I am not into cartoons. :roll:
