Ancient History Encyclopedia (AHE) is the world's most-read history encyclopedia. Our mission is to improve history education worldwide by creating the most complete, freely accessible, and reliable history resource in the world. History is fundamental for understanding the world we live in today. Our knowledge and interpretation of history shape how we define ourselves as nations and as cultures, and it influences how we see other cultures. We help people gain a deeper knowledge of our globally connected human past, in order to create a more open-minded and tolerant world in the future. We want to make history engaging and interesting for everyone, inspiring them to learn more. We target the "digital generation" by telling exciting historical stories using text, video, interactive features, and mobile apps. Every submission to the encyclopedia is carefully reviewed by our editorial team, ensuring only the highest quality content is published. Our publication follows academic standards but is written in an easy-to-read manner with students and the general public in mind. As a result, our publication is recommended by global educational institutions including: Oxford University, the European Commission's e-Learning Initiative, and MERLOT. We were the proud winners of the .eu Web Award for education in 2016.
