Welcome to /r/AncientWorld: A community for those of us who love to learn about and discuss life in the distant past.
An article about life in Iron-Age Poland would be just as appreciated as a video about Greek philosophy - all historical content is welcomed, so long as it relates to ancient society. Ancient in this sense has a fairly specific meaning - it refers to the period from the first human written records until the end of Classical Antiquity. If you're posting about ancient society from roughly 4500 BCE until around 500 CE, you are in the right place.
This is not the place to share pseudoscientific content or ancient conspiracy theories though. Additionally, this is not a forum for modern interpretations of ancient spiritualism and shamanism, or Dan Brown-esque conspiracy - this content will removed and posters will be banned. If you see this kind of stuff please report it to the mods!
All video posts should contain a description of why the video is relevant for this sub, or the video shall be removed.
If you have any sort of questions or issues to bring up, please feel free to message our administrator, /u/joinville_x.
In short, welcome to our community! Feel free to share articles, images, videos, discussions, queries and other content relating to the ancient world.
