How you can help us

We're a team creating an encyclopedia read by over a million people every single month. We're independent and constantly growing. In order to improve our site, and to provide even more free content, we'd like to ask for your help!


Become a member and get an advertising-free version of this site, along with other benefits, for only a small monthly or annual contribution. We'll use this money to produce more content faster, which will be forever free for the world's students, teachers, and history enthusiasts.

Write for us

All our content is produced, edited, and published by contributors. Anyone can submit articles about ancient history, which will be checked by our editors. We're also looking for "lighter" content, such as visits to museums or book reviews.

Share your photos

Have you recently visited an ancient site? Or a museum? We're always looking for photographs to enrich our encyclopedia. Images are what truly bring the ancient world to life, making it more accessible and understandable to our readers.

Buy books via AHE

We're online, but we love books. That's why we review them and put them up in our online bookshop. We've partnered up with Amazon and Book Depository, and we get a small commission on any books you order through us. Also, we give you a price comparison!

Visit our shop

We've taken some of the amazing photography on our site and turned it into beautiful cards on excellent paperstock. Ancient art makes a perfect cover for your wise and witty thoughts. And let us know if there are other gift items you'd like to see.

Tell your friends

We don't really advertise, so word of mouth is how we grow. If you like what we do, please go ahead and tell your friends about us. Share our links on social media. Recommend us to a colleague or send your students our way. We love to welcome new readers!
