Wikipedia:WikiProject Classical Greece and Rome

Project overviewTasksCurationGuidesAwardsOur classicistsTalk page

Welcome! This is the homepage of a group of Wikipedians interested in writing about the classical world. We aim to make excellent all articles relating to Classical Greece and Ancient Rome by:

  • Coordinating improvements to classics articles among Wikipedia editors
  • Providing an area for discussing classics and classics articles
  • Collating resources on writing classics articles

New members are always welcome; you can join at the recruitment page. If you require a project member's help with a matter of article content, please ask on the talk page. If you aren't sure how to help us improve Classics coverage on Wikipedia, read on!

What do we do?

Our goal is to produce the definitive free-content encyclopedia of classical and late antiquity, by:

  • Writing articles about classical and late antiquity, and related topics such as history of scholarship and the classical tradition.
  • Improving our articles to ensure readers receive well-written, comprehensive, accurate, reliably referenced, up-to-date, and stable content.
  • Supporting other projects, groups, and editors who are striving to achieve the same goals.
