At the Cluny monastery in Burgundy, circa 1034. About to go walkabout over the continent, I believe.

Millennium: The End of The World And The Forging of Christendom, by Tom Holland. NF, and cheeky as hell :D

I'm really enjoying it - I thought I'd have to push myself to get through it.

I'm in the Basque village of Salies in the French Pyrenees in 1914, tending to a bicycle injury.

When I requested two books about true life murders from BF it didn't occur to me that they both occurred in Chicago!

So in two books I'm in Chicago, and another book I'm in Israel and a few other places too many too list in a couple of other books.

At the parsonage at Haworth in the 1820s, glad to be away from that horrible boarding school at Cowan Bridge.
