Really and you'd do all of that without the internet, a library, or anything? Impressive.
Did you miss that my example was based on bringing a collection of books back in time as my "object to prove I'm worthy"? That's in my first post in
this thread. Plus, the OP says any time from the Romans to Medieval times, which spans from the 6th century BC to the 15th century AD. Various
civilizations were pretty advanced at this time, in particular when it came to travel, engineering, and dealing with metals. You're acting like people
were simply cavemen w/sticks and stones back then. No matter what region or time period I was sent to, I'd be able to use some of this knowledge as I
described in earlier posts.
My entire scenario is based on bringing knowledge back in time. I'd know that the Earth is round & basic ocean navigation, as well as the general
shapes of the continents, their basic climates, and their basic indigenous cultures, crops, and livestock. I'd also know of vast numbers of animals
and plants, which I could identify through my books (as well identify uses for them). I'd even be able to identify territories that were uncharted to
various civilizations, even down to basic landmarks. This information is readily available right now, but it was as good as gold back then.
Plus, the major oil and mineral deposits throughout history have been well documented by now. Depending on the time period and location I was sent to,
I'd just focus on the deposits that hadn't been discovered yet lol.
