I'm in twelfth century Sweden and I've just chopped off someone's hand with my shiny sword!

Victorian London, as my sister's neighbours panic about a murderer in their midst. My husband will get to the bottom of this, but not before we are both insulted for our social position.

I'm in modern day Somerset in a place called Penselwood, but apparently I've led a previous life and am just learning some of my history going back to the Monmouth Rebellion.

Standing in a shield-wall with my pitifully few Wessex companions while a horde of angry Welshmen pour up the hill towards us. Can we talk our way out of this one?
