The Ancients Foundation is an Imperial research agency that coordinates and directs study of the more technologically advanced precursor society of the Ancients, of which whom the being known as Yaskoydray was the most eminently well known member.
- Secondary office branch of the Emperor's Concerns.
- Tasked with study and consolidations of knowledge of the Ancients.
Even the earliest Emperors knew of the technological miracles of the Ancients as did their predecessors in the Ziru Sirka and Rule of Man. It is not certain exactly when the Ancients Foundation was founded, but every Emperor clearly desired these advanced technologies.
Most historians believe that Artemsus founded the first official Ancients Foundation and brought it out from secrecy into the public eye. Of course, much of the foundation's work is still conducted under conditions of the utmost secrecy, but many parts of it involve public researchers from across Charted Space and that includes massive coordination of interstellar efforts across the major races done by the Educational Institutes.
