About Us


AncientThought aims to establish itself as one of the leading online resources for exploring the world of ancient thought by integrating the best of current scholarship with innovative digital learning tools. To achieve this we have a timeline project that explores ancient philosophy. Timelines that consider other areas of ancient thought might be added at a later date.

At present we are not affiliated with any organization, group or academic institution, although funding has been generously received from the Arts and Humanities Research Council. To view the list of scholars who have contributed entries so far please click here.


Our editors are responsible for overseeing the formation of the timelines. If you wish to contribute an entry to the timeline -and you feel that you are suitably qualified to do so- then please contact the editor that supervises the area where your entry would most naturally fit. Please note though that the topic might have already been assigned;  but please feel free to inquire.
