If the Victorians thought a great deal about the future, they were obsessive about the past. From politicians to preachers, from artists to architects: all were steeped in history. Tyrants, heroes and long-dead martyrs gained new life as commentators ransacked history books for guidance on present-day problems. We look at some of the heroes and villains, asking why the past was so significant in a rapidly-changing society.
