Ancient History

Bringing the ancient world to life

Ancient History looks at every aspect of the ancient world: you'll find articles covering politics, society, literature, language, religion, economics, and art - all in one magazine! Like its big brother, Ancient Warfare, Ancient History Magazine is a bi-monthly, 60-page magazine that relies on a thematic approach: each issue is centered around one specific subject. From ancient explorers, via Egyptian Pharaohs and Athens in the age of Plato, to the emperors of the Roman Empire, there's sure to be something for everyone - all presented in a well-researched but accessible, fun manner.

Ancient History Magazine is written for an informed, but casual audience. Our authors regularly discuss and examine the latest scholarship on their given topic – not just the standard, safe analysis. Ancient History Magazine is committed to bringing you enjoyable and engaging articles while keeping on top of the latest in academic research. As part of this commitment to making ancient history accessible, Ancient History Magazine includes sections that explain how scholars know what they know; articles which focus on debunking common myths and misconceptions; and for those looking to explore further, a guide to high-quality books and reading material for each issue's theme.

The magazine also has more to offer than just well written articles: photographs, diagrams, gorgeous original paintings and other illustrations help bring the ancient world to life. Unlike many general history publications, we strive to avoid the stale, nineteenth-century prints and paintings often used in competitors. Instead, we commission illustrations that are as historically accurate and well-researched as our articles.
