  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
While on an archeological dig in France, Professor Johnston (Connolly) is transported by a 3-D fax machine back in time to the middle ages. Stuck in the year 1357 and with no way back to the present, a group of young archeologists led by his son Chris (Walker), travel back to the war-torn land to rescue the professor. With an extra 650 years of knowledge to their advantage, the group is sure that their mission will be an easy one. But the medieval warriors prove to be more cunning than they imagined, and the group soon learns that they have their work cut out for them. "Timeline" is based on the novel by Michael Crichton. (Tricia Littrell)
