Description (Specifications)[edit]

The foundation is funded by the Third Imperium and is an important part of the Offices of the Emperor, a part of the Imperial Bureaucracy.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

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.
