Though all the errors, of judgment and fact, are mine the site would not be possible without the assistance of a great many people. Thanks in particular to E&S. Also to KUWB who first hosted the site in 1998/9. To Duncan Head, Tom Mallon, Kemal Hassan and Sam Kazmi. Thanks also for the help in finding books and materials; Joe Cribb, Elizabeth Errington, Nicholas Simms-Williams, the staff of the British Museum, the staff of the School of Oriental and African Studies, the British library, Sheffield University Library, Spink and Sons, Oxford University Press, Keele University Library. To Duncan Head, Tom Mallon, Kemal Hassan and Sam Kazmi, Kathryn Cawte. As well as to Tarn, Rosenfield, Marshall, Puri, Narain and all the other authors who got me interested, and whose work deserves a lot more popular attention than it gets, I hope this redresses the balance a little.
