Facebook has a fan page for people who study ancient history!!

History of the Ancient World (http://historyoftheancientworld.com) is a clearing house website for all things about the ancient Romans, Greeks, Egyptians, Persians, and Chinese.  Run by Peter Konieczny and Sandra Sadowski, it does not list any official sponsor.  Their curation efforts pull together a wide variety of online sources including articles, news, video, books, and games.

And now, they have added Facebook to the mix!  More than a thousand people have indicated that they “like” the Facebook page, which features highlights from the History of the Ancient World website.  Traffic in the discussion forum is sparse at this time, but several articles (some from scholarly sources) are being tagged by Facebook readers as interesting.

Take a look at how the ancient world is garnering new attention and drawing fans!
