The Wikipedia Archives

You can find a more recent version of this page here.

Please, if you have enough free disk space, consider downloading the Wikipedia snapshots and the other cool stuff showed in this page. If you are admin in an external free-licensed wiki, please, publish backups of the text articles and images.

For a list of other wikis and their dumps, see List of wikis.

This page contains a lot of links to historical info about Wikipedia, his sister projects (Wiktionary, Wikibooks, Wikisource, Wikiquote, Wikiversity, Wikinews, Wikispecies, Commons, Meta) and her predecessors (Nupedia).

Wikipedia pages can be edited by everyone, and the histories are saved and publicly available, but usually is hard to find very old things. I hope you enjoy this page. Nostalgia time!
