Knossos, the Bronze Age, with Rodney Castelden's HNF Knossos: Temple of the Goddess. It was published around the same time as his scholarly book The Knossos Labyrinth, but has the same information and is available for a fraction of the price.

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!

I'm in Persia, in the 11th C studying to become a Physician. The only thing is, is that Christians are not allowed (by the church) to study here, so I have disguised myself as a Jew.

London, alternating between the early 18th cent. and the present day (more or less as the book was written in the 1990s).
