How You Can Contribute
Alternate History imagines what would happen if history had gone differently. We are a community for creating and discussing a wide range of alternate timelines: large and small, ancient and recent, realistic and fanciful. If you'd like to add to our growing multiverse, the following pages will help you get started.

Before you start writing, read the Conventions of this wiki. Especially, please note:

This Month's Featured Althist
Basileus' Interference

This is an involved, far-reaching, complex timeline of human history from the times of Jesus onwards, to a newer, stimulating possible scenario. It was created by Stefano, an Italian fan of AH, as a means of both studying real history and exercising a bit of fantasy.



Do you wanna see how Belisarius and Totila befriend? Or how the Muslims are stopped in North Africa and the Maghreb remains Christian? Do you wonder why Charles the Great has been assassinated in 799, and why it was his father Pepin who founded the Holy Roman Catholic Empire of the West? And what about the Bulgarian Emperors of Byzantium and the Roman Western Empire reborn? And the Norse discovery of Hesperia (OTL America)? And what's that Greater Norman Empire, or Berestia?

This and many, many other PoDs and sub-PoDs in the Interference Timeline, with some map here and there, for your amusement and delight...
