Whilst we continuously strive to improve our websites they will never truly be finished, history and science are continuously re-written as new evidence is discovered and made public. As much of the world's history was initially written by the victors of strife, there is always a tendency for them to minimise the negative and exaggerate the positive in their historical records, sometimes the real truth will unfortunately never be known. We try to keep our sites as close as possible to the educational requirements and beliefs of today to best benefit students in their studies. Should you find a mistake on any of our websites please let us know - If we agree, we will correct the error within days so that all users of the site can benefit from your diligence.
