MANUEL ROSA  is a Portuguese-American, investigative historian and author who emigrated from the Azores to the Boston area in 1973. He currently lives in North Carolina and works at Duke University’s Cancer Institute.

Mr. Rosa received the  Boston Globe’s  Art Merit Award in 1976, the Lockheed Martin Lightning Award in 2002, and the American Institute of Polish Culture’s “Special Recognition” Award in 2015.

Rosa has spent a quarter century investigating America's legendary "discoverer." He has authored five books on Columbus in several languages other’ than English and has appeared on BBC, NPR, the Travel Channel's "Expedition Unknown," and numerous foreign-language media. His work was featured on the cover of  Newsweek's Polish subsidiary in 2011.

Mr. Rosa has advised UNESCO and the Hatian government on matters related to Columbus' lost ship, the  Santa María . He has lectured on Columbus at American and European universities.

May be the best and most authoritative book ever written on Columbus, winner of the  2017 Independent Press Award in World History. The Independent Press Award also named it the " 2017 Distinguished Favorite " in Biography: Historical. It had already been named  Best History Book of 2016  in the Huffington Post. There are so many extraordinary claims the author makes and yet he meticulously supports them throughout the book, even DNA tests. Every detail is a compelling fact that leaves you begging for the next one as the plot advances. Rosa travels some exciting side trails too that no Columbus researcher ever even noticed before, let alone dared to venture down, and smashes all kinds of paradigms in the book, which reads not only like a historical work, but as a spy thriller and adventure story as well.

BOB LAMMING  holds a master's degree in linguistics from San Francisco State and has been a teacher for nearly thirty years – of English to non-native speakers, college writing, and high school Spanish. He's translated four books and shorter works from Polish.

Lamming has traveled in over two-dozen countries on four continents – all of it on his own, except for a year as a conscript with the US Army in Vietnam, and a year on a Fulbright Grant in Romania. Car-less for 23 years, he is passionate about bicycling as a way of life. Since the mid-1980s, he's toured thousands of miles solo across North America, including the entire Eastern Seaboard, from Florida to Labrador, and the West Coast from Seattle to L.A.

Born in Chicago and raised in St. Louis, he lives just outside New York City with his Polish-born wife, an independent bookseller whose extensive Polonian contacts supply most of Lamming's freelance work. Recruited on short notice to edit the newly written chapters of  Columbus: The Untold Story , he continues to collaborate with its author.

A special, limited edition – including abundant, new material, now appearing for the first time in English – was released on May 20, 2016, to commemorate the 510 th anniversary of Colón's death. While supplies last,  Columbus: The Untold Story , by Manuel Rosa, may be purchased on Amazon – or directly from its New Jersey sponsor,  Nowy Dziennik,  Polish Daily News.

that Columbus is guilty of a huge fraud carried out over two decades.”

Myths & Legends

Golden Age By Juan Carlos Barquet
The myth and folklore of ancient cultures speak of a vast cycle of time with alternating dark and golden ages; Plato called it the Great Year. Most of us were taught that this cycle was just a myth and the golden age, just a fairytale. Giorgio de Santillana, former professor of the history of science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA, tells us this idea of a cycle went far beyond Greece and India. In their landmark work, Hamlet’s Mill

Odysseus at the court of Alcinous
The mythological Alcinous and his kingdom have remained one of the most mysterious and elusive topics of ancient Greek literature. Not much is known of this foreign monarch, or at least not much has survived the test of time. Details of the ruler and his kingdom survive only in the journeys of both Odysseus and Jason, but do those details reflect a now perverted form of 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.
