Read this sometime in the 80's(actually read it after 1999). A mission from an intricate lab (in the present(?)) back to Medieval times went awry when a soldier took back live munitions, specifically a hand grenade, against scientists desires with disastrous results. Other missions had taken place, and the local inhabitants were hostile. Two of the main characters were a man and a woman.

    Critchon. 1999. Not one that stood out as a keeper. – Major Stackings Jul 12 '14 at 1:39

This sounds pretty much like Timeline. There is a movie and a book.

    Note that the movie has very little in common with the book, other than the title. – Martha Jul 12 '14 at 2:11
  • To be fair, the overall story arc & plot points are basically the same, but they did change a lot for dramatic effect. – Omegacron Oct 3 '14 at 16:12
