Hello, My name is Paul, I live in Georgia/USA, in a couple of months I will move to upstate NY/USA. 

I am retired Navy (submariner) and working on a book. Not a professional writer by any means but trying my best. Right now the book is in the research phase, the subject is stories from around the world told to children, specfically stories, myths or legends told to children to make the behave, eat their vegetables, not go out at night etc. In a nutshell I would like to know each countries version of the Boogeyman. Right now I have about 125 stories but am looking for about 175 more, I have a bunch of countries I need to research. 

I hope this is the right forum for this, if so I look forward to meeting a bunch of new folks, if not just let me know and I won’t post. 

Thanks for letting me join, have a great day!

Greetings everyone, I’m located in Canada,
As I'm new to the site, however, I'm not new to the ancient myths/mysteries or metaphysical realms. Just trying to pull my rubbers out of the muck & mire of the dogmatic imprinting I gatherer over the years. Most of my answers have come about by tediously sifting through my own imprinting which I gained from family, social, educational and cultural understandings and very little information about the spiritual aspects of life.

Searching for my meaning of life and wanting answers to questions no-one could/would answer; started later in life, as I was busy telling the world to move over, I'm coming through. It wasn't long after my search began when I was knock down a few pegs and realized (using my real-eyes) that there actually was more to life than we are lead to believe. I now know that it is our beliefs (along with a few other things) that create our reality.

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.
