Like many others born in the early depression years with childhood unsettled during the War years due to evacuation and frequent train journeys between north and south Malcolm couldn’t help but develop a taste for travel and an ear for other accents and other tongues. On VE day a whole year of High School in Harrow had passed and the goal was to join so many other names in gold letters on the large boards set high up in the School Hall that doubled as the Gym. When that was accomplished before the 1940’s were out, Cooks Tours made anyone armed with an Oxford University School Certificate very welcome to start a career in Travel which eventually included Shipping, Air and Tour companies. Following a short 3-year enlistment in the RAF with most of the time spent in Arabia, Australia beckoned. Upon return to Europe and already fluent in French, marriage into a French and Greek speaking Family in Turkey, a love for other languages grew stronger and stronger.  

It wasn’t until late in life and after retirement that I felt a need to learn to read Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs and that plus some incredible guidance from an unseen and unknown source opened my eyes to people and events that have long been misplaced both in time and in place in Bible and in History. Those mysterious concealed entities have not only pointed the way but most definitely need to be recognized for who they were and in at least one case, to be re-entombed under their rightful names.

Noah gets the message and grimaces, grasping his scepter, a symbol of his rule - soon to be displaced in the post-Flood world by Nimrod/Herakles, whose visage reveals a stern smirk.
The Book of Genesis describes human history. Ancient Greek religious art depicts human history. While their viewpoints are opposite, the recounted events and characters match each other in convincing detail. This brief article focuses on how Greek religious art portrayed Noah, and how it portrayed Nimrod in his successful rebellion against Noah’s authority.

Ancient Technology

The School of Athens
Much of modern science was known in ancient times. Robots and computers were a reality long before the 1940´s. The early Bronze Age inhabitants of the Levant used computers in stone, the Greeks in the 2nd century BC invented an analogue computer known as the Antikythera mechanism. An ancient Hindu book gives detailed instructions for the construction of an aircraft –ages before the Wright brothers. Where did such knowledge come from?

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.
