Agree and one for players too. Update every decade or 2.The thing with a complete history is it never is 'complete' for long.
This is one reason why Grecian Archive have gone down the website route.
However for those who like something tangible, could there be any milage in a series?
Maybe in a paperback or 90 -100 page match programme format - each book spanning a certain period of time and being added to periodically.
There could be a back section in each new book for newly discovered history missed from earlier editions.
