Explore the ancient world
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.

What does this Patreon cover?
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.
