One of the webs best sources for anthropology and new world archeology, Andaman.org, George Weber's Lonely Islands, has been lost. The domain name expired last month and the content is awaiting deletion.
That is truely a loss for anyone with an interest in new world archeology and anthropology. Mr Weber's compilation of information on the Negrrito peoples of south east Asia and oceana was comprehensive and thorough.
He also wrote extensively on new world dispersals of humanity cataloging the oldest accepted sites in the Americas.
I wondered how long it would last as it hadn't been updated in several years. I suspect that Mr. Weber has passed.
I wil miss the content and I used it heavily as a source in many posts.
It also re enforces my belief that digital information is fleeting and temporary.

Andaman.org was taken over by a Japanese domain reseller last year after George, who is ill, was unable to renew in time.
The domain is gone, but we have registered andamans.org (a change of one letter) and are rebuilding George's site at that url. It is a work in progress and only recently begun, but we hope it won't be long before all that fascinating and valuable information is back.
Please visit andamans.org....
