Thomas Heath (1861 - 1940) was a mathematician, classical scholar, historian of ancient Greek mathematics, and translator. He translated works of Euclid of Alexandria, Apollonius of Perga, and Archimedes of Syracuse into English. His translation of the celebrated Archimedes Palimpsest had lacunae that scholars hope to fill in by modern scientific methods not available in Heath's time. It is primarily through Heath's translations that modern English-speaking readers are aware of what Archimedes did.
