Willem Witteveen

Willem Witteveen (1957) studied nautical sciences and engineering, then spent 15 years as a navigational officer on merchant vessels, followed by 25 years as a maritime pilot in the port of Rotterdam. His background in navigational sciences, together with his worldwide travels to many different countries, inspired a lifelong interest in ancient civilisations, ancient documents and ancient writers. Finally back on shore, he is now a full-time researcher and is currently focused on
Ancient Egypt and its corresponding connections to human history. Articles by Witteveen have been published in several magazines and on various websites and his book, concerning the function of the Great Pyramid of Giza, was first published in Dutch in October 2012. He lives in the Netherlands with his wife and two children.

Being very interested in Ancient Egypt since long, he felt very mistrustful about the explanations told by the local guides, archaeologists and Egyptologists. They made no sense to him. He always was convinced that there had to be a connection between our Earth and the nearby Solar System through the Great Pyramid of Giza, encoded through the five elements: Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Aether.

He spent the last fifteen years doing research into the true function of the Great Pyramid of Giza in relation to the five elements and this resulted in a book about this subject. The author visited Egypt several times to see if there could be another truth but these formed by dogmas of certain scientists. He found a lot of similarities with the art of navigation and astronomy and this helped him to form his own conclusions.

Since the publication of the Dutch book (October 2012) he keeps searching for more evidence to construct theories and useful connections with other civilisations. So far, his theories have only been confirmed. He also publishes articles about ancient Egyptian connections in Frontier Magazine (frontierworld.nl) as a supplement to his theories as described in the book.

The book is now completely rewritten in English and contains lots of additional information and more than 200 images. It will be available end of March 2016,

The Great Pyramid of Giza – a modern view on ancient knowledge (English 2016)


"The legendary Egyptian Hall of Records is hidden in plain sight! Willem Witteveen uses not only 21st century science, but also overlooked reports from past explorations, in this meticulously researched account. He has cracked-the-code of our past to show us our future. The Pyramids of Giza can now be understood in their rightful place as the center of our world."   Marcus Allen – Nexus Magazine

Myths & Legends

A vase-scene from about 410 BC. Nimrod/Herakles, wearing his fearsome lion skin headdress, spins Noah/Nereus around and looks him straight in the eye. 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.

Human Origins

How human language began has been a question pestering researchers for centuries. One of the biggest issues with this topic is that empirical evidence is still lacking despite our great advances in...

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.
