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 exist 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.
Egyptians celebrated 30-year astronomical cycles in Sed Festivals. Each cycle comprised two periods Tekhi-Horus and Teht-Hathor of approximately 15 years named for the gods (astronmical bodies) that appeared at the beginning of each period. The “Horus inundation” was not the yearly one, it lasted for 15 years. The tidal attraction of Horus, geostationary above Mt. Kailas for this period, drew the Nile waters across eastern Egypt for the whole 15 years, allowing crops to be planted there, for example in Amarna. The appearance of Hathor, the solid core of Horus was the means by which Horus was released from this orbit. It took place on the vernal equinox. Hathor zoomed to the East low around the Earth and caught up to Horus in eight days. The Egyptian name for the Sphinx, “Horus on the horizon” was because it was staring at Horus in a geostationary orbit above Mt. Kailas. This 30-year cycle repeated 99 or 100 times. This is not just a story, it explains how soil, water, atmosphere and vegetation we now enjoy was blasted from Horus and covered the entire Earth with a new crust and the vegetation we have today.
