Roman Britain Online

This has GOT to be one of the most entertaining four oh four error messages I have EVER found!

Enjoy! It almost makes it worth falling into the great "no file found" morass!


FUBAR Alert!

404 Error - Not Found

Something has gone horribly wrong

The resource you have requested could not be found on the server. There are so many possible reasons for this that we can only list some of them:

  • The file does not exist in the requested directory. It may have been on our server at some time in the dim and distant past but has since disappeared without trace. Perhaps we moved it. Perhaps it's been renamed. Who can tell?
  • The file exists but is not accessible. Possibly because the bloody server is having its weekly identity crisis just when you wanted to get some work done.
  • You used an out-of-date 'bookmark' or 'favourite' to reach our site. In which case, get your act together and bookmark us again, you apeth! ... Although we do not suggest that you bookmark this particular page. That would, indeed, be an exceedingly pointless exercise.
  • Your search engine returned an out-of-date listing for our site. If you used a search engine such as Yahoo, Bing or Google to arrive at this page, then we've absolutely no idea what's going on (but see point 2 below).
  • Someone posted a bad link on your Social Networking site. If you followed a link posted on a social networking site such as YouTube, MySpace or FaceBook, we are sorry to tell you that you may have been misled by idiots.
  • Some other, undefineable wierdness occurred while processing your request.

However you arrived at this Code 404, we suggest that you try the following steps to rectify the situation:

  1. If you manually typed the URL into the browser address bar, please verify that you have used the proper case, as all HTTP requests on our server are case-sensitive.
  2. Go to the RBO Home Page and look for links to the information you want.
  3. Go to our Site Map and see if you can find what you are looking for in the links listed.
  4. If all else fails please feel free to Go Back to wherever you came from and start again, but this time try not to screw things up.
  5. If difficulties persist, please contact the RBO Web-Master using the link below.
