the Wareham Forge - Artisan Blacksmith

Web Site Map

The Wareham Forge web site has been under development since the late 1990's. Over the years it has been GREATLY expanded, with much added and little ever removed. Several major revisions have been undertaken to try to make it easier to navigate. There is a LOT of stuff here - and frankly, even * I * have problems figuring out where things have gotten to! To further confuse the issue, the site is huge (as of 2008 some 140 MG) and had become very difficult to manage.

With the January 2008 revision, the file structure of the entire site has been re-designed. Frequent visitors are STRONGLY urged to re-define their past bookmarks, as many individual pieces of the site have been moved into a new file structure. This index now reflects only the new locations of the individual pages.

In an effort to try to present a true 'table of contents', I have taken all the pieces and have listed them below.  Two methods are used:

First, related pages in a series are charted out by topic area (much as they link inside the site itself) 

Second, there is a straight alphabetical index - by the individual page titles.

Any page shown with * stars * is located off the main Wareham Forge series.
Any page in ( italics in brackets ) has been listed already.
Any page in [ square brackets ] includes external links off this site.

Table last compiled : JANUARY 2008
