All I remember is the macguffin is time travel, and the setting is a time period that I think may be similar to the few generations before and after the Roman occupation of Gaul. There may have been a murder mystery thrown in. The book was in English, I suspect by an American author.

I'm reading "The Discovery of Middle Earth: mapping the lost world of the Celts" by Graham Robb.
In a nutshell, he's talking about how the Celts in Gaul got a bum rap from Caesar and the rest of the Romans (read: the winner writes the history books) and it's a fascinating, well written exploration of Celtic culture based on some recent discoveries and some of his own theorizing about stuff.
Anyway, it's reminded me of a book/story I dimly remember reading years ago, at least a decade, probably two or maybe more.
