Yesterday evening, I finished reading Terra Incognita by Ruth Downie, a murder mystery set in Roman Britain, somewhat before the construction of Hadrian's Wall. Not as good as some mysteries set in the Roman Empire, but almost.

I followed that this morning with Osprey New Vanguard #45: Union Monitor1861 – 65, moderately interesting. There are actual photographs from the period and later, which was interesting. One of the last of these vessels was taken out of mothballs and joined a parade of ships before being finally scrapped. I continue with my prejudice against the American Civil War as a topic, though, and so I didn't much enjoy reading this book.
