Make a Global Difference

Ancient History Encyclopedia is a non-profit organization that is largely run by volunteers. People from all over the world contribute to our mission, driven by the belief that history is exciting and it should be told not in expensive books, but for free on the internet.

Join us and help produce one of the world's most-read history publications. In every country around the globe, readers benefit from our website. Your work will help literally millions of students, teachers and members of the public learn about history, growing their worldview and enabling them to better understand the globalized world we live in today.

Whether you're a retiree, a student, a professional or an academic; whether you work in a library, in a marketing agency, or in a university... everyone has skills that can help us! You don't even have to leave your home to do it: Our team collaborates entirely online, without any office. We have fun doing our work and there's a true spirit of camaraderie in the AHE family. Join us!

Both volunteers and employees get a variety of benefits, dependent on their role at Ancient History Encyclopedia. Once a volunteer has shown regular commitment, we provide them with all the materials they need, including:

  • Books
  • Museum tickets
  • Software
  • Digital subscriptions
Ancient History Enyclopedia also pays for all travel expenses related to attending events to represent the organization.
