Welcome to the Association of Ancient Historians

 

The AAH is the premier organization of Ancient History professionals in the United States and Canada.  Membership is open to all persons with an interest in ancient history. The Association of Ancient Historians was founded with two essential objectives.  The first of these is to foster a regular forum for scholarly interaction among historians of the Ancient Mediterranean, and secondly, to do so in a manner that emphasizes collegiality and social interaction.  

 

 

NEXT MEETING

 

The 2023 Meeting will be held at Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida, Thursday April 20-Saturday April 22, 2023.

Information and the Call for Papers are available at the conference website.

The AAH informs its members through a regular newsletter and also sponsors the publication of a series of monographs (Publications of the Association of Ancient Historians). Members receive a free copy of each title as it is published. Apart from the monograph series, AAH has published two volumes of collected essays.
