The Worlds Strangest UFO Stories

Conspiracy theories aren't new and there are many people who believe the biggest cover-ups of all time are conducted by governments in relation to UFO activity. When the atom bomb exploded in 1945 it coincided with the first witness reports of UFO sightings. But for every report that was lodged by a member of the public there was an official explanation for the unexplained activity. We hear from an ex-military man who maintains that he was instructed to hide evidence and keep secret what he personally witnessed. To this day he cannot get his story corroborated officially, a story of a crashed spacecraft and dead aliens. Will we ever know the truth?

Our Mission

Ancient Origins seeks to uncover, what we believe, is one of the most important pieces of knowledge we can acquire as human beings – our beginnings.

While many believe that we already hold such knowledge, our view is that there still exists a multitude of anomalies and mysteries in humanity's past that deserve further examination.

We therefore wish to foster an open community that is dedicated to investigating, understanding and explaining the origins of our species on planet earth. To this end, we aim to organize, support and even finance efforts in this direction.

Our aim is to move beyond theories and to present a thorough examination of current research and evidence and to offer alternative viewpoints and explanations to those currently held by mainstream science and archaeology.

Come with us on a journey to explore lost civilisations, sacred writings, ancient places, unexplained artefacts and scientific mysteries while we seek to reconstruct and retell the story of our beginnings.
