Welcome to the website of the ERC funded project “Mathematical Sciences in the Ancient World”, acronym SAW
Bienvenue sur le site du projet «Les Sciences Mathématiques dans les Mondes Anciens », acronyme SAW, qui a reçu le financement de l’ERC

The SAW project is dedicated to contexualizing mathematical sources that have come down to us from the ancient world, and specifically though not exclusively, to those produced in Mesopotamia, China, and the Indian sub-continent, more. Detailed project description in English, et en français.

Publications from the SAW project are available as well as conferences, seminars, workshop, and archives since 2011. The complete resources, abstracts, handouts, presentations, introductions from papers presented at SAW project’s events, as well as those given by SAW team members at external events or symposia are online.
