    Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction, alternate history, and speculative fiction that came into prominence during the 1980s and early 1990s.[1] Specifically, steampunk involves an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century and often Victorian era Britain—that incorporates prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy. Works of steampunk often feature anachronistic technology or futuristic innovations as Victorians may have envisioned them; in other words, based on a Victorian perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, art, etc. This technology may include such fictional machines as those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne.

    The wiki answer is short and sweet but its pretty incomplete. Steampunk is also an art and lifestyle movement. I do a steampunk club night and I have an explanation on the club's website, with four videos that really help answer the question and are pretty entertaining. If, after you watch the videos on that page, you want to know what steampunk has to do with chickens read my blog's "manifesto ."
