About

Explore the ancient world

Ancient World Magazine is a website that offers well-researched yet accessible articles, podcasts, and videos about the ancient world, with an emphasis on the ancient Greeks and Romans. If you haven't visited the website yet, go take a look!

What sets Ancient World Magazine apart from other outfits that deal with Antiquity is that our contributors are all academically-trained ancient historians and archaeologists. We each have our own voice, but are united in our desire to disseminate quality writing about the ancient world that is accessible and based on up-to-date research, often with plenty of references and suggestions for further reading.

Our content emphasizes depth rather than breadth, with the total output aiming to cover a good range of different cultures, regions, and periods. There's really no other website like it.

Who are you?

The main editorial team consists of three people. The editor-in-chief is archaeologist Dr Josho Brouwers. Ancient historian Dr Joshua Hall and archaeologist Dr Matthew Lloyd are contributing editors, which means that they write articles, take part in the podcast, and review submissions from (prospective) contributors. Various other writers have contributed to the website, by writing articles and/or by taking part in the Ancient World Magazine podcast.

What does this Patreon cover?

This Patreon covers everything we do under the banner of Ancient World Magazine. The core of the website are our articles as well as out podcast, which is available on the website and also uploaded to YouTube and available on iTunes. Right now, all contributors write strictly on a voluntary basis. But hard work deserves to be paid and it's important for us to get into that position. With your support, this Patreon should generate enough money to pay our contributors and to cover the basic costs of running the website. In addition, being able to pay contributors will attract more writers to the website, adding valuable new voices.

The regular content produced for Ancient World Magazine is not gated off in any way. All articles, podcast episodes, videos, and so on are available for free, because quality writing about the ancient world should not be locked away behind a pay wall. Patrons get access to some additional stuff that doesn't really fit the remit of the website, such as some of the chat we cut from our podcast episodes, fun stories that aren't necessarily educational, and so on. Consider it bonus material: non-essential, but hopefully fun and/or interesting.

The long and the short of it is this: the more money this Patreon generates, the more content will be published on the Ancient World Magazine website. On behalf of the contributors, we'd be extremely grateful if you decide to support this project.
