Different people throughout history have had very different lives. The one of the most important things to remember is that people have only been able to use electricity for a couple of hundred years, but humans have been around for thousands of years. So for most of that time there was no TV, no internet, no lights.

Life was much harder for people in the past. They had to get up as soon as the sun came up and go to work (that included a lot of children - before school was compulsory) and they would work until the sun went down (because they didn't have electric lights).

But there are lots of differences between the way different people lived - cave men lived in caves, but Victorians lived in houses, and the Romans even had underfloor heating!!
