Historical Mystery Novels Anyone?

I was looking throughthis thread on Ellis Peter's Brother Cadfael stories, and I found several favorites mentioned, so I thought I'd start a new thread on the subject rather than hijack the old one.

In addition to the Brother Cadfael series, I've also gone through most of Peter Tremayne's Sister Fidelma books and a few by P. C. Dougherty, including one set in Egypt in the time of the Pharohs. I've also read a few by Margaret Frazer featuring Sister Frevisse. A friend also recommended P. F. Chisholm's books to me, set in Elizabethan England (circa 1590). I'll also toss in another vote for Steven Saylor's Gordianus Finder books.

Anyone else out there got old favorites or authors I should look into?
