Sources

This page lists the major sources that I have used. It not only covers those sources used to compile the information on this site but also many of those used in the research not yet included. This is partly because it is difficult in retrospect to exclude some sources but also to prevent me constantly updating this page. However, new sources will continue to be added as I use them.
