I was thinking of a book that had something similar.


I don't need to bring advanced weapons. Just learn to make gunpowder and other weapons that would be a bit more advanced than the populace knows at the time and you're golden. Know the "history" of your area for the next 100-200 years to know who to get in good with and to avoid.

Antibiotics would be item number one.
Tylenol/Advil/ whatever medicine I think I might need.
A pair of Glock 9mm with as much ammo as I could fit.
Water purification tablets.
World History book
And if I could find it, a listing of the major weather and geological events of that time period.


And the most recent copy of penthouse.

If I am going back in time, I could just steal it since I wouldn't have to worry about going to jail. :)

This is the way to go, knowledge is power and digital stuff is very space efficient as long as you take something to charge it. I'd probably take 2 small netbooks (in case one fugs up) and a bunch of hard drives- basically take all the info I can. Thorough history of the era and culture/ language, detailed maps, info on edible plants/ animals of the region, basic tech and scientific manuals, all the royal bloodlines. Probably take some medicine too, little gold, and small revolver with a few rounds

The goal would be to become the right hand man for a king, then live the life of luxury while giving him just enough knowledge to keep him in power
