The historical mystery category is so huge I break it down into chronological divisions. I hope some of you might find them useful enough to use:

Historical Mystery: Ancient  [up to approx. 500 AD]

Historical Mystery: Medieval [from 500 to about 1450]

Historical Mystery: 16th c [basically the Renaissance period; starts about 1450 in Italy]

Historical Mystery: 17th c

Historical Mystery: 18th c

Historical Mystery: 19th c

Historical Mystery: Sherlock Holmes  [for pastiches; I'm a fan)

Historical Mystery: 20th c [up to 1970s or so]

In addition, for series I try at least to add the main character [Cadfael, Sister Frevisse, etc.], plus whatever other tags that might be helpful.

Come visit my bookshelf, I'm spending too many credits....
