Having been interested in writing creatively from an early age, my experience with writing and editing extends well beyond a few years. My college career, beginning at age 16, led me into various writing courses which challenged me and required high levels of attention to detail. When I dove into academia at the University level through a history degree, I quickly realized the dedication that all writing requires of a team of people capable of cutting through to the meat of any topic. With experience ranging from editing short collections of poetry at my local community college to writing my own forty-page Baccalaureate capstone project, no project is too long or too short. I look forward to the challenges and exposure that working with others brings, and the ever present reward which the written word brings us all.

Ancient Technology

Grinding stone, Dendera Temple, Egypt.
Most people know of the great construction achievements of the dynastic Egyptians such as the pyramids and temples of the Giza Plateau area as well as the Sphinx. Many books and videos show depictions of vast work forces hewing blocks of stone in the hot desert sun and carefully setting them into place.

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.
