The Society of Ancients is an international amateur society for the promotion of the study of ancient and medieval military history and wargaming for the period 3000 BC to 1500 AD. It is run by volunteers for the benefit of its worldwide membership. The Society publishes a bi-monthly journal, Slingshot, and sponsors various events, including wargames tournaments.

The Society was formed in 1965 by Tony Bath with 20 or so founder members. Our membership is now over 1100 worldwide. The Society is not run for profit but is supported by and exists for the benefit of its members and to promote Ancient military history and wargaming. Membership is open to all, renewable annually.

All finances are ploughed back to improve services and add value. We have also been active in establishing links with the commercial side of our hobby and now members have access to discounts from a range of figure traders, specialist books and games.

The Society publishes its journal, Slingshot, 6 times a year. Most of the content is contributed by Society members on a wide range of items related to Ancient and Medieval military history and wargaming.

There are historical articles, reviews, letters, game design ideas, as well as the usual discussion on various wargames rules. Competition results and the occasional battle report are also published. Slingshot is designed to showcase the written contributions from our membership and features original pen and ink artwork.

The Society also publishes wargames with ancient and medieval themes.
