RAND FLEM-ATH is a 5 th generation Canadian living with his wife and co-author (ROSE FLEM-ATH) on the Pacific coast of Canada. In 1976, Rand discovered that an ancient map of Atlantis published in 1665 by the Jesuit priest, Athanasius Kircher, featured a remarkably accurate depiction of the sub-glacial contours of Antarctica (features unknown to the modern world until 1958). Convinced that Antarctica was Atlantis, Rand sought a climatic explanation for how people could have once lived on the now icy island continent. The answer came by reading the books of Professor Charles Hapgood with whom he corresponded about the theory of earth crust displacement from 1977 to 1982 (when Hapgood died). In 1981, Rand published in the scientific literature using the theory of earth crust displacement to explain the sudden global rise of agriculture around 9,600 B.C. (Plato’s date for the destruction of Atlantis). Rand then embarked upon a comprehensive study of world mythology using the resources of the Reading Room of the British Museum. Further research in archaeology, anthropology, geology, and the philosophy of science resulted in a trio of books, WHEN THE SKY FELL (with Rose), THE ATLANTIS BLUEPRINT (with Colin Wilson) and ATLANTIS BENEATH THE ICE (with Rose).

Rand has a Masters degree in Library Science from the University of British Columbia. He was the Senior Researcher for Business International UK, now a part of The Economist. The standard biographical reference work, Contemporary Authors writes that Rand is known for his “intense dedication and diverse research…” skills that Rand brings to his new 15 year study of the biblical story of Moses.

The theory that Tsar Alexander I craved a holy life as a monk is based on him seeking forgiveness for coming to power after the murder of his father, Paul I. Source: Vesti Tomsk
Officially, Alexander I died of typhus aged 47 on December 1, 1825, but evidence suggests he faked his demise and lived as a holy man. Genetic analysis is soon to be used to determine whether Tsar Alexander I lived for almost four decades as a modest monk after his supposed - and unexpected - death in Taganrog on the Azov Sea, a senior Russian churchman has indicated.

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.
