The original concept of The Samurai Archives was to create an online database of Japanese pre-modern history, and to act as a gathering place for interested individuals to contribute to the building of the website. A "standard" html website proved to hinder the process of building a database, and now with the SamuraiWiki, we are finally able to create a user-friendly database that can easily be updated and added to at will. If you are interested in becoming an editor, please feel free to join the Samurai Wiki Editor's Group. Enjoy!
