Focusing on the year 1851, when the completion of the Crystal Palace seemed to mark the height of Victorian Britain's success, this website asks viewers to decide for themselves whether life in Britain was really as wonderful as contemporary accounts suggest. Sections on working conditions, health issues, poverty, public safety, and gender equality thus seek to reveal less celebrated aspects of Victorian society.Interactive activities and a final quiz-like game allow viewers to test their recall after viewing the site.
