A break for the summer

2018 edition

Summer’s a busy time for us here at Ancient World Magazine, so we’re taking a short break. We’ll be back on the 13th of August.

Written by Josho Brouwers on

It’s summer! The sun’s out and many people are preparing to go on holiday. Thanks to modern forms of transport, we’re able to travel farther than at any time before in history, and for comparatively fair prices, too.

As for me, I’ll be leaving for Italy in a couple of weeks where I’ll be getting married to the beautiful and talented Arianna Sacco. Naturally, this means it’s an incredibly busy time: preparing things for the wedding, finishing up some stuff related to the publising company that I work for, doing some client projects (mostly websites), and so on.

Our contributing editors, Joshua Hall and Matthew Lloyd, have also been very busy of late, working new jobs, finishing their respective book projects, and, of course, preparing to spend some time with family and friends.

Since many of you, dear readers, will undoubtedly also be off to enjoy some rest and relaxtion, now seems like an ideal time to take a bit of a break. But don’t worry! We’ll be back to our regular schedule of updating the website about three times a week from Monday, August 13th onwards, when we’ve all returned from our sojourns elsewhere.

We’ve got a lot of new stuff lined up for when we’re back. If you want to be kept appraised, please subscribe to our newsletter: we haven’t done much with it so far, but from August onwards you can expect a new issue of the newsletter every month, delivered straight to your inbox.

In the meantime, feel free to check out some of the older articles, for example by browsing our online archive. You can also check out the tags and see if there’s anything you like. And if you have any suggestions for us, either features you’d like us to add to the website or ideas for articles, feel free to let us know.
