Rethink What is Possible
Based on Michael Crichton's latest best-selling novel,
Timeline opens on the threshold of the twenty-first century. It is a world of
exploding advances on the frontiers of technology. Information moves instantly
between two points, without wires or networks. Computers are built from single
molecules. Any moment of the past can be actualized -- and a group of
historians can enter, literally, life in fourteenth-century feudal France.
Combining a science of the
future with the complex realities of the medieval past, Timeline carries us
into a realm of unexpected suspense and danger, overturning our most basic
ideas of what is possible.
You are part of a team of archaeologists excavating an
historic region of modern day France. Your team leader, Professor Johnston, has
mysteriously disappeared leaving behind an unexpected videotape addressed to
you with an imperative request. Now you must travel back to fourteenth century
France to rescue him.
