Alexander. Hieroglyphs. The Vinland Map. D-Day. Rob Roy. And much more. At, Timothy Spalding has quietly assembled an unusually rich, assiduously maintained collection of web guides and resources on selected historical subjects.

I especially like the sites for ancient astrology and Sir Richard Burton, both intended to save you from the nightmare of attempting a web search on those terms and getting endless results pertaining to, respectively, horoscopes and Liz Taylor's ex-husband.

Yeah, Tim Spalding's great; this is one of the best such sites on the web. I can't believe it hasn't been posted here before. Well done!

Roman Sites Try this location for a wide variety of links from a Roman/Classical starting point. Nothing on Liz's nth husband though, but you might end up with information on Antony and Cleopartra!

Any friend of Richard F. Burton's is a friend of mine (but no reference to Fawn M. Brodie's The Devil Drives on the Books About Burton page??). Can't wait to dive through the rest of these links.

Wow! Thank you staggernation...
