Ancient History Encyclopedia helps teachers, students, and schools by providing them with reliable, easy-to-read, and high-quality resources entirely for free. By creating an engaging and exciting encyclopedia, millions of people have been inspired to learn more about human civilisation and our shared past. The organisation targets the digital generation by sharing an array of historical topics and narratives through text, video, interactive features, social media and mobile apps.

The company's website is the largest and most popular history encyclopedia on the internet with over 20 million annual readers and over 700,000 social media followers.

Every submission to the encyclopedia is carefully reviewed by its editorial team, making sure only the highest quality content is published on the site. The 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, the encyclopedia is recommended by many educational institutions including Oxford University, the School Library Journal, MERLOT II and Open Education Europa.
