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.  This project was funded by the European Research Council under the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013)/ERC Grant Agreement No. 269804. Detailed project in English, en français. Achievements of the project are described here.
