New Member introduction

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!






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.
