Time Travel/Timeslip: Past -> Past

In which the protagonist or major character(s) are from the past (from our perspective) and travel even further into the past.

Example 1: A book written in the 1980s takes place partially in that time. The protagonist from that era finds themself in medieval Scotland.

Example 2: Our protagonist is from 1873. They somehow end up in the Mesozoic period.

Example 3: The hero lives in 1993 New Jersey, and is transported to 1975 New Jersey.

Not applicable: A character from the 1400s finds themselves in 1965. For books like that, check my other lists.

When adding a series, please add the first volume applicable to this list.

Jennifer Not sure if Paper Girls applies. The girls are from 1980's but they travel to alternate time lines and the first jump is to the future and several other jumps are to the future as well. I think they jumped to the past in the second volume, but it's like a primordial world.

Lily Is there a list for Past->Present? I don't know who's the author of this list.
