World History Encyclopedia
Formerly known as the Ancient History Encyclopedia (AHE), the World History Encyclopedia is the world's most-read history encyclopedia. It has been developed by a non-profit organisation. It's mission is to engage people with cultural heritage and to improve history education worldwide.
It wants to make history engaging and compelling, inspiring users and visitors to learn more. We reach the digital generation by sharing an array of historical topics and narratives through text, video, interactive features, and social media.
Every submission to the encyclopedia is carefully reviewed by our editorial team, making sure only the highest quality content is published to our site. Our publication follows academic standards, but it is written in an easy-to-read manner with students and the general public in mind. As a result, our publication is recommended by many educational institutions including the European Commission's e-Learning Initiative. The encyclopedia was the proud winner of the .eu Web Award for education in 2016.
