"dans laquelle" vs. "ou"

Would it also be correct to say "L'époque dans laquelle il vivait..."?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Où = where AND when (relative pronouns)"

Bonjour Carol, Here you could use 'laquelle' but not with "dans", simply because with "époque" you use the preposition 'à' : "Je suis né à cette époque." (I was born in that time.) Therefore, you could say: "L'époque à laquelle il vivait ...". I hope that's helpful!
