LINE UP FOR THE
Irving Finkel - The Flood Before Noah
Irving Finkel is Assistant Keeper of Ancient Mesopotamian script at the British
Museum. Born in 1951, he is a British archaeologist and Assyriologist in the spirit
of nineteenth century Assyriologist George Smith, who translated cuneiform tablets
revealing the Mesopotamian version of the story of Noah's Ark and the Great Flood.
The appearance recently of a cuneiform tablet on which was a previously unknown
version of the ark story has brought the subject back into the news. Following
its translation by Irving Finkel, the palm-sized tablet was found to contain previously
unknown elements of the Mesopotamian flood account, including the fact that the
Ark was round, and the animals went in two-by-two. The matter is the subject of
Irving Finkel's book The Ark Before Noah (Hodder, 2014). It reveals the
different forms of the flood narrative, which later feature in both the book of
Genesis and the Holy Koran. It is this fascinating story that Irving Finkel reveals
to the Origins 2014 audience.

DIRECT FROM PERU VIA VIDEO - BRIEN FOERSTER - The Genetic Mystery of the Long-headed
most controversial story within the ancient mysteries subject recently has been
the announcement that mitochondrial DNA extracted from long-headed
skulls belonging to the Paracas culture of Peru has revealed that these individuals
might not form part of the current human type, Homo sapiens sapiens (click
here for more details). This has led to wild speculation that the elite of
the Paracas, who thrived around 2,500 years ago and were eventually wiped out
by the incoming Nazca people, were either aliens or a human sub-species.
Foerster, the Peruvian-based cranial expert and ancient mysteries writer behind
these recent claims addresses the Origins 14 audience via skype to reveal the
truth behind these discoveries. He shows that the Paracas elite display unique
anatomical traits, including distinctive auburn red hair, missing suture lines,
and twin pairs of foramen-like holes, marking them out as unique in the human
record. He proposes that their elongated heads might actually be natural in some
instances, and not the result of artifical processes involving head boarding or
linen wrapping as has always been assumed. He also reviews evidence of long-headed
elitism worldwide, revealing a global phenomenon whereby the heads of elite groups
were deliberately deformed to mimic the appearance of great ancestors linked time
again with the same things - megalithic monuments, ancient astronomies and advanced

Manjir Samanta-Laughton - Black Holes and the Origins of Civilizations.
is growing evidence to suggest that we are not the originators of civilisation
but inherited it from advanced societies that lived in some former golden age.
So where is the physical evidence for these societies? Why do the ancient accounts
insist that our ancestors possessed fantastically long lifespans, and that the
ancient kings were of divine origin, descended of the gods themselves?
people dismiss these stories as legendary but could there be a real science behind
them? In this presentation we will explore a theory of the cosmos that takes us
into the heart of black holes and back to explain how space and time may work
differently from how we previously thought, giving a possible explanation for
the origins of ancient civilisations using evidence from astrophysics.

Newman - The Megalithic Giants: The Lost History of a Forgotten Race
a long time, it was thought that Giants were simply fairy stories,
but recent research into old documents, newspapers, journals, first hand reports
and old academic publications, suggests these may have been a historical reality.
There are accounts in the Bible referencing giants, and Stonehenge was said to
be built by Titans. Now there are archaeological reports from both areas that
support these claims. Yet it is the discoveries in North America that have created
the biggest controversy, as there are now at least 1,000 reports of a powerful
giant race, some with double-rows of teeth, red-hair, elongated skulls and six
fingers and toes, who existed across the continent from at least 8,000 BC. This
evidence is putting the orthodox origins of human history into jeopardy.
this years Origins 2014: the Origins of Civilization Conference in London
on November 15, Hugh will give us a whirlwind tour worldwide, focusing on giant
skeletons found in the vicinity of ancient sites that may give an insight into
how and why these prehistoric sites were built, as well as delve in to why this
mystery has been deliberately covered up.
Newman is a writer, explorer, conference organiser, international lecturer.
He is co-founder also of the Megalithomania conferences, and author of the book
Earth Grids (2008). The talk is based on the work he has done with Jim Vieira
for new book Giants on Record. He is just one of the speakers at Origins 2014.
Collins (born 1957), writer, explorer, international
lecturer and author of books that challenge the way we see the past, including
The Cygnus Mystery (2006), From the Ashes of Angels (1996), and
the recently published Gobekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods.
Collins - Rise of the Human Hybrids
bestselling new book Gobekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods advances the theory
that the Watchers and Nephilim of the book of Enoch, and the Anunnaki of Mesopotamian
mythology, preserve the memory of tall, long-headed Neanderthal-human hybrids
that entered eastern Anatolia from the north during the Younger Dryas mini ice
age ca. 10,900-9600 BC, and cataclysed events that led eventually to the creation
of megalithic sanctuaries such as Gobekli Tepe and Karahan Tepe, both situated
in a geographical region remembered as the Garden of Eden and Cradle of Civilization.
In this brand new presentation for the Origins 2014 audience Andrew reveals the
much wider global impact of human hybrids on the rise of human culture and cosmology.
He shows also that the stories of the discovery of giant skeletons at mound sites
on the North American continent presents compelling evidence of hybridization
involving the recently discovered human sub-species known as the Denisovans. He
also reports on new discoveries at Karahan Tepe, which increase dramatically our
knowledge of the Gobekli builders' age-old cosmology inherited from a much earlier

SPECIAL GUEST APPEARANCE FROM
Sirius Mystery Revisited
of the most inspiring and motivating books in the ancient mysteries subject is
The Sirius Mystery by Robert K. G. Temple, first published in 1976. There
is little question its proposal that the Dogon tribe of Mali preserved an archaic
cosmology implying that celestial beings from the Sirius star system were the
founders of civilization furthered the claims earlier made by Erich von Daniken
and others that the earth was visited in some former age by extraterrestrials.
Yet the book was far more than that. It showed also that the mythologies of ancient
Egypt and Mesopotamia shared common themes with those of the Dogon, in particular
the belief that anthropomorphic beings with fish-like qualities rose from the
depths of the primordial waters to educate humankind. Moreover, that the Dogon
were aware of a small white dwarf called Sirius B, that made an elliptical orbited
around the much larger, and clearly visible, Sirius A, something that should have
been impossible to the naked eye alone. The Sirius Mystery inspired a generation,
and Origins 2014 extends a warm welcome to its author Dr Robert Temple, who revisits
the topic of his book as we approach its fourtieth anniversary. He reveals new
information that brings the subject full cycle and re-ignites the mystery for
the modern generation.

venue for the Origins 2013 conference is the plush theatre hall in Steiner
House, 35 Park Road, London NW1. It is situated just a short distance from
Sherlock Holmes fictional address of 221b Baker Street, which actually exists
today (it didn't when Arthur Conan Doyle wrote his Sherlock Holmes stories in
the early twentieth century).
theatre is in the art style of the futurism movement, and forms part of Steiner
House, the home of the Anthroposophical Society. This was founded in 1923 by Rudolf
Steiner (1861 - 1925) as "a path of knowledge to guide the spiritual in the
human being to the spiritual in the universe", which aptly describes the
function today of psychic questing. For Steiner, the society was "an association
of people whose will it is to nurture the life of the soul, both in the individual
and in human society, on the basis of a true knowledge of the spiritual world".
The organisers of the Origins 2013 conference are honoured to have been given
special permission to hold the event at this prestigious venue.|
Saturday conference at Steiner House takes place between 10am and 9pm, with the
first lecture beginning at 10.15 am. Doors open at 9.15am. There will be an hour
