You are Newton. You don’t know how you got here!

You are a scientist in London, living a secret life as an alchemist: trying to perfect the science of turning base metal into gold. Last memory you have is of falling asleep under a tree in a garden, after a hard night’s work in your laboratory.

Next thing you know, you are here in this mysterious place with a note. The people here are wearing strange clothes, and iron horses are running on the roads! Confused, you proceed to read the note.
