Welcome to Ancient-Touch!!


This is a group for all who feel inspired by history and ancient civilizations. Unlike other history groups on deviantart we sort our gallery folders by civilization not by type of art (traditional, digital, photography....) which is useful if you are interested in a particular ancient culture.

Group rules:

:bulletgreen: It is preferred that you are a member if you are going to submit art but sometimes your art may be featured with your permission even if you are not a member.

:bulletgreen: You must submit to the right folder..... seriously guys, this is a history fan club. We like cultural accuracy. Do not submit your ancient Egyptian mythology fan art to 'native pacific islanders' -_-

:bulletgreen: no offending other members. Pretty self explanatory :P

:bulletgreen: there is no limit on gallery submissions so go wild and stalk dead people :D

:bulletgreen: NO ART THEFT. If you are suspected of art theft you will be removed from the group. We've had an art theft already. Not good, guys.

:bulletgreen: Mature content like violence/blood/gore is allowed (there is something about ancient war scenes for example that is just AWESOME) nudity is also allowed though PLEASE use a mature content filter. This is very important and violators will be banned.

:bulletgreen:above all, have fun!! This is a learning atmosphere to talk about history as well as a place for viewing pretty artwork.

Don't forget to check out our affiliates too!! You can find these beautiful people right above the comments section on this page. They all have more wonderful history groups that you can check out.

Our group favorites.

Hello, fellow deviants and members of Ancient-Touch! This journal entry is to thank everyone who entered in the Ancient-Touch tagline contest. The contest is now closed, and our winner was :iconsyltorian: , who has received the 10-point prize ;)

After all, aren't we all 'cultists of Clio' here? :D

You can see our new glorious tagline under the group logo. I chose it because it says 'Clio is a muse too' meaning that 'history is an art too'. It's short and sweet, and a good representation of our group too. It's an obvious reference to Greek mythology, but it's still inclusive of all ancient history lovers.

Also, I highly suggest that you all take a look at :iconsyltorian: 's contributions to the group. He has submitted many beautiful photographs to the ancient Roman folder, and I'm sure we have ancient Rome fans here who would love to see those. :)

Too lazy to go find the ancient Rome folder? Then just click whichever thumbnail catches your eye:

Castor and Pollux by Syltorian  Nennig Mosaic: Lion vs. Wild Ass by Syltorian  A Day at the Market by Syltorian  Porro, Veneti! Allez les Bleus! by Syltorian

Once again, thanks everyone for entering!!

Your admin,

Our admin, co-founders, and contributors have organized the folder names.

Of course, the real magic comes from all the members who submit their art here :D

If you would like to add a folder please contact us with a suggestion!

Also, we like to obsess over ancient history so please feel free to have nerdy conversations with us <_<
:P ;)

Thank you for letting me join :) (Smile) 
I'm sorry that I don't have any artwork that would fit the folders, but maybe someday...
