Austin K. Yajima

Mythographer, entrepreneur, plant medicine specialist and former monk, Austin has spent his entire life roaming abroad. Growing up with different ethnic groups in seven different countries has enabled him to overcome culture shock, which also allowed him to discover numerous uncanny similarities between distinct cultures. Additionally, Austin has survived flash floods in the Philippines, both SARS and Avian Flu outbreaks in China's epicenter, the Sri Lankan Civil War, as well as the 9/11 Great Tohoku Earthquake in Japan. His experiences with various people or events has taught him valuable life lessons which he currently uses to help guide or motivate the people towards the unknown futures. Last, but not least, Austin is also the founder and leader of the nonprofit organization Legendz Collective, which focuses on decoding the mysteries of the past while providing free knowledge to the public in turn – especially to children in war-torn and disaster-stricken regions of the world. Austin believes that once decent education - combined with creativity and philosophy - can inspire the minds of today's children, they'll be able to grow into the new generation of geniuses the future will witness.

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.
