Armando Mei is an investigative journalist born in Turin in 1967. He worked in prominent Italian newspapers.  A self-trained Egyptologist, he worked on many research projects that were the seed for his book (italian version): "36.420 B.C - Le Piramidi Satellite ed il Codice Segreto" with a Preface by Ph.D. Lloyd Knutson (Entomologist-Scientist). In scientific terms, the book describes a revolutionary discovery about one of the possible functions of the Pyramids of Giza and provides a clearer meaning to the Papyrus of Turin (Royal Canon) with its long list of Gods which ruled Egypt since 36.000 BC. Along with Graham Hancock, Robert Bauval, Jean Paul Bauval, Robert Schoch, and Andrew Collins, he was speaker at the International Conference on Ancient Studies, Zayed University, Dubai in 2010.

He wrote several articles about the quests of Ancient Civilizations, specifically about their scientific knowledge.

In 2011, he published his second book (italian version): "Oltre le Nebbie del Tempo" in which he explains the discovery of the monument connected to Sirius; and in 2013, his third book (italian version): "La Porta del Cielo", he describes the alchemical process originated in the chambers of the Great Pyramid, inscribed in an ancient book “Rosarium Philosophorum”.

In 2012, he published two researches on the Pyramids of Visoko (Bosnia):

1) Astronomical correlation between monuments and the Arch of Orion, fixed in 36,420 BC;

2) Investigation on enigmatic stone found in Ravne Tunnel, reproducing an ancient astronomical map much more older than 100,000 years ago.

In October 2013, he co-authored with Semir Osmanagich, the book (italian version): "Visoko: La Scienza occulta delle Piramidi". The book tells about latest discoveries in the Bosnian Valley.

In his the latest book published in 2014, “Il Segreto degli Dèi”, he talks about the uncovering of the Original Project of Giza.

"Armando Mei's new book on ancient Egyptian sacred science is a brilliant thesis and imperative addition to this complex and fascinating subject. It is full of new ideas and breakthroughs, and a 'must-have' for all who are attracted to this ancient and mysterious civilization ".

I met Armando Mei in Pescara, Italy during Conference on ancient civilizations. We had several nice conversations and he opened up. He was telling me about his ideas on connections between archaeological monuments on the Earth and star systems. I encouraged him to write about them. It took some time and finally he agreed to share his knowledge with the public. He has combined my research on Bosnian pyramids with his ”.

As an “18th - 19th century” style biologist whose research is the life - cycles - taxonomy -geographical distribution of flies, I have no credentials vis-à-vis the technical points of Armando Meis’s hypotheses. But his logic is persuasive. (And also, perhaps a complete outsider’s perception has some use in evaluating innovative scientific forays).  As a research leader in my discipline for the United States Dept. of Agriculture for half-a-century, I learned to recognize scientific explorers, pathfinders, trail-blazers,  those pursuing novel ideas, with passion. Earlier, my Professor at Cornell University warned me as I tried to work out the life-cycles of flies, “In science, expect the unexpected.” That is, keep your eyes and ears and wits open.  After many discussions about their studies with Armando, it seems to me that my Professor’s caution encapsulates the essence of their conclusions. They may be correct. They may be incorrect. But the trail on which they lead us is provoking ”.

Stonehenge at night.
In the 1960s, a portion of a ditch excavated into chalk bedrock west of the henge at Stonehenge was discovered during construction for the pedestrian underpass that provided access to Stonehenge until a year ago. By 2014, geophysical testing confirmed that the ditch stretches over 900 meters (2952.7 ft.) from southwest of the Stonehenge henge to a point near the south ditch line of the Greater Cursus, northwest of Stonehenge.

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
