Dennis Brooks's picture

Dennis Brooks is a retired, independent researcher who studies Atlantis and other mysteries as a hobby. His ebooks, “Atlantis Pyramids Floods” and “Earth's Magnetic Field Secrets,” are updated and republished as new information comes available. Brooks also publishes workbooks that teach children and adults to read, especially those who have learning disabilities. His reading workbooks are his way of giving back to the community because he had trouble learning to read when he was growing up.

Brooks has spent over 20 years researching Atlantis. In 1995 he found that the Florida Plain matched the description Plato gave as the Plain of Atlantis. Since then, he has been looking for other ways to connect Atlantis to the Americas and Egypt. In 2012 he published a book called “Atlantis, Ten Tribes of the Americas”, which he later changed the name to “Atlantis Pyramids Floods.”

Since then he has added new discoveries, ancient stories, and new terrain features to tell Plato’s story. He believes that with enough interest in the subject, credibility will return to Atlantis as a topic of research. His book explains the terrain features of Atlantis in a way that will allow you to explore and reference the information online. That makes “Atlantis Pyramids Floods” an interactive eBook.

Most people are now familiar with the traditional "Out of Africa" model: modern humans evolved in Africa and then dispersed across Asia and reached Australia in a single wave about 60,000 years ago. However, technological advances in DNA analysis and other fossil identification techniques, as well as an emphasis on multidisciplinary research

Ancient Technology

The calendar is one of mankind’s most important inventions. Calendars allowed societies to organize time for religious, social, economic, and administrative purposes. The calendar, or rather, two sets of calendars, were invented by the ancient Egyptians. One of these was a lunar calendar, which was used mainly for the organization of religious festivals.

Ancient Places

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.
