This is the home of Howard of Warwick; creator of Historical fiction gone very wrong indeed.

The Chronicles of Brother Hermitage: a monk more medieval than detective, who nonetheless solves mysteries – somehow. Accompanied by Wat, weaver of adult tapestry, and by Cwen talented young tapestrier with a temper like a bull with a bear on its back. Brother Hermitage regularly stumbles upon the answer – and then gets made to do it again.

History as it might have been, but probably wasn’t: 1066 and Magna Carta have fallen to Howard’s unique interpretations. Enough to make full-grown historians reach for the smelling salts.
