Early 11th century England. A new king was just crowned.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"

Present day Devon, and also somewhere in 1815, although I'm not sure where yet, but I'm assuming the two storylines are linked somehow.

At the beginning of creation on the Northwest Coast of America. The Creator just brought Copper Woman into being from all the good things of the earth and fashioned the first male from her snot. ;)

Douglas Adams' fictionalized Cambridge, in London.

Camelot.

The red tent.
