Take a look at our world map and discover an exhilarating open world to explore.

The Ancient World is one of the oldest Minecraft Worlds and longest running public servers known today, with the map first being created in July 2010 using Minecraft Alpha v1.0.4 where it was primarily used as a Single Player Survival World, then becoming a private server in early 2011 before finally becoming a public server later that year.

With a great community of players, we welcome others from anywhere in the world, so feel free to jump on and have a look around. It’s free to join.

The World itself is filled to the brim with rich player history, a lot of which remains undocumented however much has been documented and archived by the players themselves over the course of the servers history, as well as some of it being published here on our website.

The TAW Codex contains a wealth of information on the history of our server as well as useful resources.
