Time and Date

If you've planned on setting your novel in the past, here's a website from timeanddate.com that could prove invaluable to you as it allows you to call up a calendar for any year.

You can also calculate the distance between any places in the world. I just discovered that from Bristol to Sunderland it's 392 kilometers or 244 miles or 212 nautical miles (should there be major flooding at the time).

Other fun stuff includes working out just when you'll be 1 billion seconds old.

Thanks, both. I hope it'll prove useful to anyone writing a historic piece. :-)
