    Hank and Arthur find shelter with a local couple, Marco and Phyllis, and discover the lord was murdered and his manor set on fire. Arthur is convinced it is the three boys from the small pox hut. Hank says he will tell Marco where to find the boys. Once they are alone Marco tells him he only participated in the events so he didn't fall under suspicion.

    A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s CourtbyMark Twain
    Last time we saw Hank he was holding court with King Arthur. Hank shared with Arthur the idea of disguising himself as a freeman to get a feel for the common people. King Arthur loved the idea and asked to join.
    Before they could leave Arthur needed to finish a few Kingly duties. While Hank is waiting he buys a newspaper, one that he invented and reads the account of the miracle at the fountain to the monks.
    Disguised as commoners Hank and King Arthur set out. As they travel King Arthur finds it difficult to humble himself before other nobles. It doesn’t take long before he forgets his disguise and starts cursing and yelling at passing knights. Hank intervenes by throwing his dynamite torpedo at the knights, killing them and their horses.
