A·C is about prehistory and classical and late antiquity, so if you are a history lover and you are into archaeology and ancient ruins, just join the group and start submitting!




Submission rules :police:


The folders are classified by culture or civilization, not by region. If you have deviations related to a culture that doesn't have a folder, tell me and I will most likely make one. Submit to the New Submissions folder, the founder will later move the deviations to the appropriate folder. The limit is 5 submissions per day.

  • All submissions must be your own original work.
  • Do not submit any deviations that aren't related to ancient history.




When does ancient history end :?


The ending date of ancient history is disputed, some Western scholars use the fall of the Western Roman Empire in 476 AD, the closure of the Platonic Academy in 529 AD, the death of the emperor Justinian I, the coming of Islam or the rise of Charlemagne as the end of ancient and Classical European history.

A·C will be using the following dates as the end of ancient history:





Favourites and Featured folders :deviation:


The best deviations in A·C are copied to the Favourites and Featured folders, so they both contain the same deviations. But unlike the Featured folder, the Favourites folder also includes photos of deviants that no longer use their account.

You'll always be among us, Rowan Elle. :rose:

Hello, I am the founder of AncientCivilizations. I nominated a new admin with full powers. The group now changed purposes: it is opened to the whole world like AncientCultures.

New AncientCivilizations Group

Things have been moving quickly since my last Comment and Journal, www.deviantart.com/ancientcult… . Active member Sepdet has set up a new Group called AncientCivilizations, www.deviantart.com/ancientcivi… .

The new Group has a narrower scope than our one, it deals with the Mediterranean and near-east as far as Persia.  So Northern European cultures, the rest of Asia, the rest of Africa and all the Americas are not covered. Even so, the fact that the Civilizations Group has an active Founder who can appoint extra Admins and create or delete folders etc gives it a distinct advantage. Our Group has become fossilised, the remaining Admins have too few powers to manage the Group effectively.

So I strongly recommend that all members of our Group join the new Civilizations Group. If you can, please volunteer to be a Co-founder or other Admin. Groups with only one or two Admins tend to die quickly, see my personal Journal about this problem from five years ago www.deviantart.com/bobswin/jou…

I have limited resources, so in a few weeks I will reduce my activity on this Cultures Group. I will focus what time I have on submissions that are for regions not covered by the new Group (see list above). So please carry on submitting those here, but submit Mediterranean world ones to Sepdet's Group.

Best wishes,  Bob S

Time to set up a new Ancient Cultures group?

This Group is in a state of paralysis.  The main reason is that the Founder no longer logs on to DeviantArt and that none of the remaining Members have sufficient powers to change anything nor to appoint new Admins.

That means that the two remaining Admins have to do a lot of work.  Yet they cannot rearrange the many, very complex folders in the Gallery, nor put anything in the right folders.  They cannot appoint new Admins, they cannot even change basic rules like the number of submissions you can make per week, nor clarify existing rules where different interpretations exist.

I have tried to contact the Founder, but without success.  Sadly there is no hope of the devArt management helping out here.  Their Support Page www.deviantartsupport.com/en/a… says that they only help if the Founder has been deactivated or banned, which he has not.

I am not a young person, the oldest photo in my own Gallery dates from 1973, forty-seven years ago, which should give you some idea.  I will not be able to carry on keeping this Group afloat for ever, so perhaps it is time to move our activity to a new Group where there can be more, younger Admins and clearer rules that meet the needs of our current and new members.

People are still trying to join this Group, so there appears to be a need for something like it, but carrying on as we are is not viable.

If you would like to be an Admin in a new Group with similar objectives to this one then please send me a private Note.

Best wishes, Bob S.

Hi,
The Founder of the Group is very busy with other things at the moment.  So I am helping out by moderating pictures that are submitted.  This is quite hard work (I do this for three other Groups as well!) and also I do not have the power to change the rules.  So for the moment please be patient and submit the normal amount of pictures.
Best wishes, Bob S.

Yes it is.

For some reason new works are not appearing on the right hand side of the Gallery page, but if you click on the "Featured", "New Submissions" or "Traditional ..." tabs on the far left of the page you will see the most recent submissions.  :D

My compliment and admiration to your wonderful group.
You have a place for writers, too and for photographers ... and a feel that there might even be room for more.
My heart lives up visiting such a great gallery and place :heart:
Ankh, udja, seneb and may God's Light guide you :)

You are very welcome :)

EDIT: To be honest: I was looking for another "ancient" group I can put my heart in :)
And I was looking for one that is still alive as so many beautiful groups having aroused my interest are dead.
So, you have proven that you are active even with a little time delay - and now ... you will have a new member :)

I've been trying to submit some deviations, but they're not being accepted or rejected. Is there a reason for this?

Syltorian Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2017
I'm not quite sure what happens to the other admins. I warned the founder over a year ago that I could not take care of this on my own - real life constraints force me to go weeks or even months without the time to check through the notes - but I never really heard back... Sorry about that. At any rate, the problem is not with you or your deviations, but with our own schedules.
