Welcome to ancient-wisdom.

 

...'Exploring the frontiers of Prehistory'...

 

The current archaeological 'renaissance' is unearthing the past at an unprecedented rate, with whole new chapters of history being revealed each year. While most discoveries are mundane, there are some which have something new to tell us about who we are. They echo in testimony to our ingenuity, aspiration and our relationship with the universe within which we find ourselves.

Archaeology has allowed us to journey into the physical past,  but it has also created a forum for a dialogue within as we begin to reveal what lies beyond the physical presence of such artefacts and structures. One of the main objectives of this website therefore, is to seek out and question the wisdom of our ancestors in relation to the world we live in  today and ask the simple question:

'...Is this really the best we can do..?'.

 

 
   Site Objectives:

 The objectives of ancient-wisdom have changed little since the site began in 2005. They are as follows:

  1. A clarification of certain 'modern myths' and 'ancient mysteries'.

  2. Bridging the gap between modern myth and scientific discovery.

When I first began ancient-wisdom, i was driven by my own personal interest in the field of prehistory. In particular, I wanted a clarification of certain 'modern myths' being propagated in popular literature. From the outset, it became apparent how little is still known about the events of prehistory, being a relatively new field in itself... and one which has already revealed the predominance of an absence of facts in the record.

The lack of conclusion over certain ancient artefacts has exposed a division between the literature of academics who are restricted from free thinking, and the non-academic enthusiasts who have no restrictions; a situation which has resulted in a confused public perception of prehistory. It is this very absence of fact that has produced so many false assumptions in the past, and therefore deserves to be tackled openly and without prejudice.

   3.    Exploring if and how  ancient wisdom can be used to benefit us today.

We live in a world on the brink of perpetual war, poverty, crime, over-consumption and exploitation of our natural resources. The call for a 'civilised' world has been met at a phenomenal cost, and one that we know cannot be sustained indefinitely. Although the emphasis in popular literature is traditionally concerned with the physical 'abilities' of our ancestors, there are other aspects of the human journey being revealed which are less commercial but which are arguably more important - such as the evolution of the mind and the quest for a higher spiritual state.

 

 

   Who's behind ancient-wisdom ?

The content of the ancient-wisdom pages is written and edited by myself, Alex Whitaker (BSc Hons).

During my ten years in Portugal, a country with a rich and still relatively undiscovered prehistory, my growing passion for things prehistoric finally spilled over uncontrollably in the shape of this website...

Whilst I have not received any training in prehistory, I respect the value of empirical research and have attempted to maintain a fully referenced academic standard throughout. At the same time as recording my own personal journey into the world of prehistory, I have seen the volume of traffic to the site continue to rise each year - a pattern which has followed since it began. This unexpected fact has inspired me to continue improving both the look and the depth of content in a more dedicated and professional manner.
