David was a Director of an AIM and Nasdaq company, he has had an illustrious commercial career however after winning a £1.5 billion contract on behalf of British Telecom, he realised it meant nothing. This realisation was coupled with a major spiritual event when he became ‘one with the universe’. This led him to Buddhism and he attended The Buddhist Society of Manchester for 12 years. Following his separation in 2012 he spent 3 years in Dubai discovering himself. David had numerous spiritual experiences before he met the sacred plants. Ayahuasca has taught him so much and he says one Ayahuasca ceremony is equivalent to many years dedicated meditation.

In 2016 David published his first book, “There is More to Life” which describes his amazing journey from being a successful businessman in England to running Munay Medicine a plant medicine retreat in the Sacred Valley, Peru. David says helping people discover themselves is more rewarding than anything he ever achieved commercially.

More humans have walked on the moon than have been to the deepest parts of planet Earth and although the oceans cover 70% of Earth’s surface, we only know around 1% of the seafloor. Many a mystery surrounds the deep blue and this is the remarkable story of a cryptozoological enigma which washed up on Scotland's northern shores in the 19th century.

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.
