MARCCHOPPER, WELL YOU HAVEN'T ANY PROOF THAT WHITE EUROPEANS INVENTED THOSE THINGS YOU MENTIONED.….ALL THOSE THINGS THAT YOU MENTIONED WERE EITHER INVENTED BY BLACK PEOPLE, OR THEY CONTRIBUTED THE MOST TECHNOLOGY TO THOSE INVENTIONS.   EVEN YOUR PC (PERSONAL COMPUTER) WAS INVENTED ABY A BLACK COMPUTER SCIENTIST NAME DR. MARK DEAN WHILE LEADING THE TEAM PROJECT WHILE EMPLOYED BY IBM, EVEN "DOT COM” WHICH 80% OF ALL COMPANIES USE TO LOCATE THEM ON THE INTERNET WAS INVENTED BY THE BLACK DR. McHENRY, THE LIGHT BULB FILAMENT WAS INVENTED BY DR. LOUIS LATIMER, THE GAS MASK WAS INVENTED BY DR, GARRETT MORGAN, AND OTHER BLACK SCIENTIST INVENTED THE MOBILE REFRIGERATION UNITS ON CARS, TRUCKS, BUSES, TRAINS AND PLANES.    PAPER TO WRITE ON (PAPYRUS) WAS INVENTED IN EGYPT (NORTH AFRICA), SO WAS INK, AND THE FIRST WRITING SUCH  AS HIEROGLYPHICS WAS INVESTED BY THE BLACK NUBIANS, AND LATER GIVEN THE NAME HIEROGLYPHICS BY THE EGYPTIANS, ACCORDING TO THE ANCIENT GREEK HISTORIAN, DIODORUS SICULUS….I CAN SEE THAT YOU MUST HAVE STOPPED LEARNING IN JUNIOR HS...

Well, there are blond blue eyes black africans .. just google it , they are beautiful.

Please provide some evidence of this genius. Fact all modern inventions everything you use from your clothing, medicine, house, phone, radio, tv, film, planes trains and automobiles etc. come from the genius of the white European mind.

Andrea3, your comment was very fascinating, truthful, as well as explains the silliness of non Black Africans twisted and illogical views of ancient  Black African empires and civilizations.  The genius of the Black mind is simply AMAZING  and complex to the rest of the worlds people who are mind bent on doubts about Black African people..

It amazes me how desperate some people from certain communities read races can be to claim old glory. How does someone come and build a great civilization in a continent they hardly know. An in case the egyptian civilization is in doubt lets look at others like the pyramids in western Africa, the oldest known civilization in south Africa, Axum etc to prove that there were great acin Africa then. The kingdom Thebes was actually called Wose and is as African as they come. So I feel Africans need to speak up and stop letting other people write their history for them. " When the story of the hunt is written by the Lion, it will always glorify the hunter." African civilization, African continent, African glory. Surely there are other achievements on other continents that other people can claim ownership to. I wonder why it is so difficult for some people to beleive that a civilization on the African continent, in and African community was started by Africans themselves. In any case there had to be something to attract people from farwaway lands theyw ouldnt just come there to do nothing anyway. And please lets stop beeiving Africans couldn't have achieved great things coz that beleif to me is simply preposterous. You just have to look at the recent discoveries in technology that have taken place to know Africans have great minds. And also the place in Africa where the first c section was performed was in East Africa in Uganda. Please lets be truthful Enough has gone on and Africans we need to stand up to all such lies and preposterosity, claim what is rightfully ours that was stolen feom us even the glory.

Human Origins

Adam and Eve (1640s) by Jacob Jordaens.
The common male and female ancestors of human beings are popularly known as “Genetic Adam” and “Genetic Eve.” A study conducted by researchers at the University of Sheffield claims all men can trace their origins to one male ancestor, ‘Adam’, who lived approximately 209,000 years ago. This places ‘Adam’ within the same time frame as ‘Eve’ - the ‘mother of all women’ – and provides evidence for the existence of a prehistoric ‘Adam and Eve.’

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.
