was the inspired creation of Professor Andrew Sherratt, and its origins lay in thirty years of research and teaching in world archaeology. The web site started as a small pilot project in 2000, making use of new technologies, to provide an outlet for ideas which could not be expressed in other media. Much of the initial content, images and text were created by Andrew or under his direction, from the cited sources, and reflected his opinions about the topics under discussion.

The realisation of this project continues to be made possible, after Professor Sherratt's death, through the collaboration of the team, contributors and associates, whose skills and ideas contribute to its development and future direction. We hope that will stand not simply as monument to Andrew's research and teaching, but provide inspiration for scholars to take his work in new and exciting directions. For a brief sketch of the original ArchAtlas concept, see Professor Sherratt's Introduction to the Project.
