Welcome to Ark.au

How much can the modern world teach us about the ancient world — and the reverse? How did people live before modern technology?

Access to Information

Right now is a unique time in the entire history of the world. Centuries of information lie at our fingertips.

Lost Knowledge

Welcome to Ark.au.
Ancient Meets Modern.

How much of yesterday's knowledge might help us now ? And how much of today's knowledge will really be left for future civilisations?
