The Ancient History Encyclopedia offers a wealth of resources that may appeal to teachers and students of ancient history, philosophy, classics, and art. In addition, this highly engaging website is delightful to browse and may also appeal to the generally curious. The Encyclopedia was founded in 2009 by Jan van der Crabben, a former game designer who "realized that the internet was missing a reliable and comprehensive resource for ancient history." As of this write up, visitors can explore this resource in two ways. Under the encyclopedia section, visitors will find a searchable index where entries are sorted alphabetically, from Abu Simel (an ancient Egyptian temple) to the Zhou Dynasty. Individual entries are authored by a variety of authors and scholars and feature images, videos, and embedded links to related entries. Visitors may also browse entries via region or a timeline. The tools section features some interesting maps, a Latin Dictionary, and even a helpful tool that automatically converts standard English measurements to measurements to those originally used in Ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt.
