ROSE FLEM-ATH is co-author (with Rand Flem-Ath) of WHEN THE SKY FELL which was translated into a dozen languages and has become an ancient history classic. It incorporates Rand’s extensive research into origin myths from around the globe and locates Atlantis in Antarctica. It explores the possibility that the lost civilization was destroyed by an earth crust displacement around 9,600 BC.

In 2012 Rose and Rand co-authored ATLANTIS BENEATH THE ICE which updated and expanded the seventeen years of research found in WHEN THE SKY FELL.

Rose has a B.A. in English Literature and has worked in academic and public libraries. She was an assistant editor for Media Monitor, a Financial Times (UK) publication.

Her first novel, FIELD OF THUNDER, takes place during the first Gulf War. The story is precipitated by the British nuclear tests in Maralinga, Australia and involves a biological threat incubated in a secret lab near Pine Gap.

Her most recent novel, THE EVADERS, follows the desperate trail of North American survivors of an Ebola-like virus as they flee to the wilderness in search of sanctuary. They soon realize that they can’t outrun the weaknesses and secrets that haunted them in safer times.

Rose has twice been awarded the prestigious Canada Arts Council grant for fiction. She is working on a new novel about a twelve-year-old caught in the personal and political tumult of the Cuban Missile Crisis.

KILLING MOSES is a ground-breaking retelling of the story of Moses.

Most people are now familiar with the traditional "Out of Africa" model: modern humans evolved in Africa and then dispersed across Asia and reached Australia in a single wave about 60,000 years ago. However, technological advances in DNA analysis and other fossil identification techniques, as well as an emphasis on multidisciplinary research

The calendar is one of mankind’s most important inventions. Calendars allowed societies to organize time for religious, social, economic, and administrative purposes. The calendar, or rather, two sets of calendars, were invented by the ancient Egyptians. One of these was a lunar calendar, which was used mainly for the organization of religious festivals.

Ancient Places

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.
