This site does not attempt to organize material into a strict hierarchy of categories. The applicable model is a mesh rather than a tree. The contributors and maintainers make no attempt to classify pages by subject. Each page is a single topic that links organically to other, related topics.
There is a method to this madness. Classification hierarchies can be difficult to consistently apply - should an article on a Jerbiton covenant in Constantinople be filed under "House Jerbiton: Covenants," "Constantinople," "Covenants: House Jerbiton," or even "Thebes Tribunal?" In a physical filing cabinet, it could only be in one place (unless we want duplicate entries). Of course, on the Web, we can very easily place links to our article under all of those categories, and more. The categories start contain so many cross-references that they cease to resemble a tree and instead become ... a mesh.
A good article, which explains this rationalre in more detail, is [| "Ontology is Overrated"] by Clay Shirky.
Since there is no tree-like hierarchy organizing this site, there's no way to make a "site map" or similar page. Instead, we offer three alternatives.
