"An extraordinarily comprehensive index that is annotated to serve a worldwide audience.
After scouring the net and wearing out one search engine after the other, stop and rest your eyes. The authors of this presentation have collected, sorted, annotated and linked what you might have been searching for those many hours. If your research requirements include Europe, this is the place to start, not end. Get it either thematic or by country. And it gets better with each revision."

A heart-felt thank you for enriching the time we spend on the World-Wide Web.

From the New Scientist:

Planet Science is the New Scientist Web guide to science on the Internet. Sites especially worth visiting are listed in a special Hot Spots section. The Archaeological Resource Guide for Europe is listed there with the following comment:
- As its name suggests, this set of links indexes Web sites, discussion groups, usenet newsgroups and other resources from or about Europe. It is well-organised and doesn't just put its links into a long list - it annotates most mentions with descriptive comments.

From Ron McCoy (

I recently came across your Fringe Archaeology web page. Occasionally, I teach a graduate-level course on "Whodunit: Mystery and Evidence in History." Your page will be a must-read for students the next time the course is offered.

From Simon James, author of the Ancient Celts pages:

By the way, love ARGE, use it all the time, well done! Cheers, Simon.
