The novella “To Bring the Light” by David Drake was published for the first time in 1996.

Flavia Herosilla is a well educated woman who lives in the imperial Rome when she is hit by a storm and almost struck by lightning. Stunned, she struggles to recover full consciousness and when she does it she realizes that she’s no longer in the same place. Somehow she traveled back in time to the period when Rome was about to be founded.
