Three weeks ago, the Kickstarter campaign to launch Ancient History Magazine came to an end. As you may remember, we received all the money we needed and more. The first issue of the new magazine will, therefore, have no less than 84 pages (instead of 68).
So, what will this issue look like? Immediately after announcing our plan to start a new magazine, people started offering their help. There were several proposals for articles on the theme of the first issue, “Discoveries in the ancient world” (or, more simply, “Explorers”): some from people who have in the past contributed to Ancient Warfare, others from among our close associates, who were sympathetic to our plan to offer a modern take on ancient history. I had expected that it would be hard to get sufficient content for the first issue, but Josho and Jasper believed that it would be quite easy. They were right.
