Connie Willis' To Say Nothing of the Dog is a great time travel story, and funny as heck too. The title comes from Jerome K. Jerome's Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog) and the guys from that novel make a cameo appearance in Willis' novel. The time traveller's go back to the Victorian era to look for the Bishop's Bird Stump that was lost when the Coventry Cathedral was destroyed in WWII for a powerful woman who is obssessed with rebuilding an exact replica of the old cathedral.
