The first official Cirith Ungol website was run by Robert Garven himself from 1999 to 2003.
Then a new site was launched by Bart Gabriel, cirith-ungol.dragonight.de from 2004 and truemetal.org/cirithungol ca. 2007-2009.
After that site was discontinued, I volunteered to create a new site, so I created The Cirith Ungol Webpit, a fansite hand written in messy PHP and launched it in March 2010. That site was very inspired by the comprehensiveness of The Iron Maiden Commentary and Black Sabbath Timeline.
This website launched more than five years later is an attempt to clean up the messiness a bit and to be more dynamic and mobile-friendly.
This website is an ongoing project and not a finished product.
