The Rohantime Review 2015
About this time of year I spend time in the Rohantime Archive. It helps with the preparation of the Rohantime Review. It struck me the archive is an underused resource. Each story/post on Rohantime is categorised by category. There is also a date archive. Which is really useful to see what was happening this time last year etc: December 2014 and right back to when Rohantime was launched February 2009.
Below are just a few highlight from 2015.
The Rohantime 2015 photo album has been added to the Rohantime Gallery
