Gary Moran holds a B.S. in Industrial Arts majoring in Metals Technology from Oklahoma Panhandle State College.
I have 40+ years of experience in virtually all forms of metal forming and fabrication. Over the course of my career, I served variously as Lead, Supervisor, Inspector, Quality Manager, and Plant Manager for several different companies. In the job shop arena, it was quite common to ‘reverse engineer’ products, which often required me to examine a sample to determine the raw material/ methods/tools used in the original manufacture. My experience as an inspector taught me to ‘read’ tooling marks which enables me to determine the method(s) of manufacture (and therefore an indication of the age) of metal objects.
Ancient Origins has been quoted by:
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.
