A previous thread asked how to get the MC to a different world. I want to have my MC arrive in a different time on Earth. I have an interest in medieval England, so my MC would "wake up" in that period. The MC wouldn't know how he got there, and everyone around him acts like he belongs. The MC would have to "catch up" with local history and events on his own without revealing that he came from the future. The locals might think he is crazy and put him away. I would then have the MC discover some kind of villainous plot (assassination, coup, theft of a valuable item, etc.), and he has to figure out how to stop the execution of the plot. I was thinking at this time, some of the characters around the MC begin to wonder who this guy really is. They might consider him a spy. Anyway, I need ideas on how I get the MC to "back" in time (without getting into major sci-fi or fantasy explanations. I want the book to be mostly historical suspense fiction). I haven't decided yet whether to have the MC end up back in the present, or live out his days in history. Thanks.
