As a new member I am not sure how the old site acted long ago but when I did access it there seemed to be a smoothness to it. I also realize all new apps have a period where bugs must be worked out. Thus I have refrained from comment until invited.
It seems the site is slower now and buffering quite a bit. When an article is selected it does a short reverse buffer then does a long buffer clockwise. The tab itself flickers and then when you select read on one page the articles jump about a bit and then settle but the tab itself continues to flicker and buffer. The tab continues to buffer and flicker even after the article displays on one page. I have tried access on two different computers in two seperate location which have differing net service providers with the same results. Also when you go to correct errors in this message box sometime deletions are duplicated. Also having trouble signing in I think due to a long time waiting for the system to complete its loading. If I wait a minute or two before hitting the tab for entering my name and password it seems to work ok. Just too slow all the way around. I have been going to the home page from the net to read most articles instead of accessing from the new app because it is easier to use. Squirt some oil on the new app please.

as for me, I preferred the old site, before restructuring. Now it seems to much on one page, confusing..
but then,may be it is better for others.. using various apps.. so, go ahead with you think,feel is best.
Obviously you put a lot of work into improvements -though some friends may not see improvements as such. Most important is the content!! best wishes, christel

Hi Steve. No there is not an app for Kindle Fire yet. However since there is for Android, maybe the app works for Kindle Fire too??

Top New Stories

An upside-down Christmas tree.
Hanging a Christmas tree from the ceiling makes some sense – it can keep your floor space clear and may protect your pets or young children from harm – but it is not common. The costly trend of hanging a tree upside-down is a whole other matter. As with many things that go against the norm, there is a lot of controversy and confusion about the practice of hanging an inverted tree from the ceiling.

Human Origins

Map of sites and postulated migratory pathways associated with modern humans dispersing across Asia during the Late Pleistocene.
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

Ancient Places

The eerie mansion that is today known as Loftus Hall.
Driving along the isolated road that runs down the scenic Hook Peninsula in Ireland’s Ancient East, it is easy to spot the mansion that has earned itself the reputation as the most haunted house in Ireland. If ever a building fit the stereotype of a home haunted by its bloody and tragic past, this was it...

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.
