Josho Brouwers

Editor-in-Chief

Josho Brouwers studied Archaeology & Prehistory (2005) at the VU University Amsterdam. At the same institution, he also wrote a PhD thesis (2010) on warfare in Early Greece (Late Bronze Age to Archaic). After his PhD, he conducted postdoctoral research at the University of Thessaly from 2009 to 2011 (NWO Rubicon grant). Following a brief stint as Lecturer, he pursued a career beyond the campus, eventually becoming the editor-in-chief of paper magazines about the ancient world (2012–2017).

Josho’s dissertation was published in a revised and more accessible form as Henchmen of Ares: Warriors and Warfare in Early Greece (2013). He also wrote a book on Greek mythology, which was published in Dutch by Athenaeum in Amsterdam (2014). He works as a freelance teacher and speaker, giving courses and lectures about a wide variety of topics related to the ancient world. On occasion, he has appeared on the national radio.

Josho is editor-in-chief of Ancient World Magazine.

Wrath of the Titans (2012)

Wrath of the Titans (2012)

A sequel that is better in almost every way to the original, 2010’s remake of Clash of the Titans, even if it has little to do with the original ancient Greek story of the hero Perseus.

The gorgon Medusa

The gorgon Medusa

The gorgon Medusa was more than just a monster to be slain by Perseus: she has an interesting backstory of her own.
