Ancient History Encylopedia has a mission to teach you about ancient history in a way that is fun, reliable, and easy to understand. It’s a free, non-profit educational website. We use many different forms of digital media to keep history interesting, and a place a where you can always keep exploring and learning new things.
All the information on our website is well-researched and referenced, everything is reviewed before we publish. We are neutral, our information comes from a non-biased stand point, we want to analyse history from every angle and share that with you.

Our revenue comes mainly from donations, advertisements, and book sales. Everything that we take in, we invest back into AHE to create a better service for you. We are passionate about what we do, and we want to continue doing it! But keeping a free service running has many expenses such as running the site (servers & traffic), historical source books for our authors, and various subscriptions.
We use different medias to make ancient history as fun and interactive as possible; interlinked timeline, interactive maps, illustrations, etc. We believe that digital media is far better-suited to representing the relationships between historical events than textbooks are, especially in education.
History is a story worth telling, it should be exciting and well presented. Therefore we aim to convey in all our content our belief that history is the greatest story ever written. We regularly publish interviews with historians and archaeologists, in which they share their passion for ancient history with our readers.
