Timeline: Eine Reise in die Mitte der Zeit

An der idyllischen Dordogne in Frankreich liegt das Ausgrabungscamp des amerikanischen Geschichtsprofessors Edward Johnston. Hier bekämpften sich Engländer und Franzosen Mitte des 14. Jahrhunderts während des Hundertjährigen Krieges, und die vier Ruinen - zwei Festungen, eine Mühle und ein Kloster - sind für Johnston und seine Studenten ein ideales Betätigungsfeld. Eines Tages kommt Professor Johnston ein unheimlicher Verdacht: Könnte es sein, dass die amerikanische High-Tech-Firma ITC, die sein Forschungsprojekt seit Jahren großzügig unterstützt, eine Zeitmaschine entwickelt hat und damit bereits in die Vergangenheit gereist ist? Wie sonst ist die Genauigkeit eines Aufrissplans des Klosters zu erklären, der ihm aus Amerika in die Hände gespielt wurde? Wutentbrannt fährt Johnston in die united states.

Nur wenige Tage später erreicht ein erregter Anruf das Camp: Der Professor sei ins Mittelalter gereist, und seine Studenten würden dringend gebeten, ihn von dort zurückzuholen. Auf den Wissenschaftshistoriker Chris, die Architektin Katherine und den Alltagshistoriker André wartet die Begegnung mit einer sensationellen Maschinerie, die die Erfüllung eines uralten Menschheitstraum in greifbare Nähe rückt - und eine Reise zurück in eben die Zeit, an deren Erforschung sie schon seit Jahren arbeiten. Die Verlockung, sie hautnah zu erleben - und dabei den Professor zu retten - ist größer als jede Angst...
