Still in Acre - 1191 and it's still a dangerous place. Going to Tyre soon, that is a journey I'm not looking forward to!

:eek: that sounds familiar!
I'm with a Roman slave who's just been released by Caratacus to give a warning to Plautius, the Roman commanding the invasion of Britain in 43 AD.

I think I'm with the same Roman slave in the middle of a battle a few days later.

It's 1249 and I'm ten years old. I have just arrived in the court of Eleanor, wife of King Henry 111, to be a squire (and hopefully friend) of the Lord Edward, their son.

I'm trying to comfort my husband, who has just signed his brother's death warrant.
