I have several Favourites linked to this site (particularly the list of RIB) and now I am getting a not available or not accessible message. I have refreshed the search and get the same answer.

Does anyone know what's happened to it? I found it a really useful site Confusedad:

I noticed the same thing a few days back, but assumed it was a temporary glitch. Results from the site no longer come up in google searches either. It would be a shame to lose such an excellent resource...

Well I suppose I'm glad it's not just me but it is a sad loss, if that is the case. Confusedad:

Which one? The old one at the .uk address died a number of years ago, as the guy who built it had MAJOR medical problems. I have brought it back at
The main addy is, of course: [url=http://]http://www.romanobritain.org/


I have been in contact w/ the original builder, Victius and he has some more stuff. Waiting on more contact. All I can tell you.

Thanks Marsh, but sadly that's not the same site Confusedad:

Worth a look though!

I think it's a separate site actually - Roman-Britain.org is run by Kevan W White (according to R Vermaat here - although the contact address is via his site...)

All the links for it I can find just get 'server not found'. At least the British Library seem to have archived the site for preservation, whatever that means...

The main thing it's archived at a certain stage but it doesn't sound good, does it? The link they provide is no longer live.

I did buy the domains http://www.romans-in-britain.com and http://www.romans-in-britain.info to go w/ http://www.romanobritain.org but sure would like to buy THIS domain. Sounds like he let the site die or something. I DIDN'T back that one up.

Also, you can go to the wayback machine at Internet Archive and get this bit. It's better than the Brit one, but they only captured a lot back in 2007, still, it might have what you want. You have to monkey w/ it. http://web.archive.org/web/2007100309262...itain.org/

Thanks, Marsh. That's really helpful.
