Australian Mythology

Australia, a vast land dominated by desert and semidesert landscapes, was first inhabited by the Aborigines.

Most of the myths deal with the features of the landscape, how they were created, and their importance to the Aborigines.

In Australian mythology, there are no standard versions of individual myths. Instead, a tale about a particular character varies from region to region. The reason for these variations in the mythology lies in the lifestyle of the Aborigines.

Mind Blown

500 Songs to recreate the Journey of how the land formed. These songs hold much more meaning and ancient spiritual power than songs repeated on the radio in the present. I wish could do more than imagine a life growing up seminomadic and all the mysteries of the world around you were sang into understanding. Everything you knew was because of a story from your Father or Mother from their Father or Mother and so on like the telephone game we all played as kids except the tales were so sacred it would kill you to miss or mistell something.

I would, 100%, go back in time to be seminomadic or nomadic.

Ahhhgg, just imagine how close these people were.. travelling around with eachother forever chasing their food.

Human Origins

The Kalash (known also as the Kalasha) are an indigenous people living in what is today Pakistan. Although Pakistan is an Islamic Republic, with more than 95% of its population being adherents of Islam, the Kalash hold on to their own religious beliefs, along with their own identity, way of life, and language.

Ancient Technology

Ulfberht was like a Medieval luxury brand for swords—but unlike your Gucci purse, the swords were of such high quality they were almost … mystical. Dozens of these swords—made with metal so strong and pure it’s baffling how any sword maker of that time could have accomplished 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.
