If I click on the Kindle link for this book, it brings up a page of garbage.

Try to ‘right click’ and then ‘save as’. Probably your browser is trying to show the file on the page!

This gives the option to save as a .azw3 file but don’t know what to do with it.

This azw3 file can be opened by a new Kindle device. If you have an old one, you need a mobi file which is in this link: http://www.ancient-origins.net/media/19106


Thanks for that. I have an early Kindle Fire HD. At least now I have it in my Kindle for pc library.

Thank you for your generous gifts.

i was lucky to download the 3rd year anniversary e-book but can not find the way to download the previous two books...can you help me please?

Becoming open to old information in the Age of Enlightenment is an oxymoron, but truthfully a gift to those who have eyes, ears, and a heart for the love, light and creative genius of our one infinite creator.. Thank you for choice.

Ancient Places

From this map of the site, all the main structures and rock carvings are visible.
The little town of Malinalco lies at the margins of the Valley of Tepoztlan, some 115 kilometers (71 miles) to the southwest of Mexico City. Since Prehispanic times, its name has been associated with magic and sorcery: Malinalxochitl, goddess of snakes was worshipped on the Cerro de los Idolos, a hill overlooking the entire valley and the town below.

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.
