The goal of the Ancient History Encyclopedia is to make ancient history available on the internet in an accessible and modern format, showing definitions, timelines, maps, articles, and illustrations about various ancient history subjects.
The website is organized around tags, which means that similar content can be displayed for many related subjects. For each tag, we have a definition, a timeline, several in-depth articles, maps, and illustrations.
All content is created by the community, and is reviewed for quality by the editors before it is published. This way we ensure that all content is relevant, readable, and accurate... which is not always the case on Wikipedia (where quite a few ancient history articles and nearly unreadable).
The site already has a lot of content, but to live up to its goal, much more is needed. Please join the community and add your knowledge to the website! We need timeline entries, definitions, articles, and maps.
Ancient history is too important to be hidden in expensive books or badly-organized websites... Free ancient history!
