Ancient-Skies is a global scientific project which aims to collect, verify and publish available information about various human cultures, their astronomical knowledge and its representation in the sky within a single web-accessible knowledgebase. Our aim is to rely on primary sources and verify them scientifically, so that the published information is valueable to the general public and scientists all over the world.
With the unique Chance of the International Year of Astronomy - 2009 we started to communicate the project to the international astronomical community. This is critical to the project, as our overall vision
is achievable only in a global network. So if you feel that you might contribute to our project, you are very welcome to join the team.
Knowledgebase in transition
Please note that we are currently transferring the complete project to a new environment. But as we receive absolutely NO financial support whatsoever, this will take some time. Of course you could support us in this process. Consequently, only a small portion of our knowledgebase is currently available to the public. As as we transfer more parts, they will be accessible again.
