A Note to Authors
This book is a work in progress, so feel free to contribute to it in places you see as unfinished or lacking information.
The only major guidelines that authors of this project should follow, are to use New Zealand (British) spelling, follow the Wikibooks rules on unbiased writing, and keep the chapters fairly short and concise. Also, when distinguishing dates, use BC and AD. Otherwise, what authors choose to put in, as long as it is relevant and factual, is up to them.
