Time Patrolman (Time Patrol #2) - Poul Anderson

The creaking Phoenician ship slowly approached its destination. Everard gazed out over th sparkling water at the ancient port of Tyre. 'A grand sight indeed,' he murmered to the captain, glad of the easy electrocram method of learning the language. His gaze went forward again; the city reminded him not a little of New York.

Time patrolmen like Everard guard the past. No matter how good orevil an event, it must be held inviolate.
