This site has been archived as part of King's Digital Lab (KDL) archiving and sustainability process, following background analysis and consultation with research leads wherever possible.

Project content and data has been stored as a fully backed-up Virtual Machine and can be made available on request (depending on access controls agreed with the Principal Investigator) for a period of at least 2 years from the decommissioning date indicated below.

If you have an interest in this project and would like to support a future phase please contact us by filling in this form.

At its inception, KDL inherited just under 100 digital research projects and websites. Aware of the intellectual and cultural value of many of these projects, with the support of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at King’s College London, KDL took on its responsibility to the community to steward them in a responsible manner. When the options of setting up a Service Level Agreement for further hosting and maintenance with KDL and/or undertaking migration to IT Services at King’s or other institutions were deemed infeasible or inappropriate, the archiving process was initiated.

We would like to thank research leads, the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at King’s College London, and partner institutions, for their support in this process.

LACTORs are a series of translations of source material for the study of Ancient History and Classical Civilisation, which do not assume any knowledge of ancient Greek or Latin on the reader’s part. They bring before the reader a wide range of Greek and Roman literary texts, documents, inscriptions and coins, which illuminate the history and civilisation of many areas and periods of the ancient Greek and Roman worlds. They are particularly, but not exclusively, designed for use in sixth form or high school courses and university undergraduate programmes.

LACTORs were initially published under the aegis of the London Association of Classical Teachers (L.A.C.T.), starting in 1968, but are now published by the LACTOR Committee, an independent non-profit-making body.
