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.

Business Career

In 1960, Turner&aposs father made him the manager of Turner Advertising’s Macon, Georgia, branch. Turner quickly showed a natural talent for business by more than doubling the office’s revenue in his first year. When Turner’s father bought out a competitor in 1962, the costly buyout and subsequent debt placed the company in a tenuous financial condition. Fearing bankruptcy and struggling to cope with bipolar disorder, Ed shot himself to death in March 1963. Turner dealt with his grief by throwing himself into his work. He took over the roles of president and chief executive officer at Turner Advertising, renamed Turner Communications in the late 1960s as the company bought several radio stations. By 1970, he had achieved the distinction of owning the biggest advertising company in the southeastern United States. Turner eventually expanded into television, purchasing the rights to old movies and situation comedies. The decision proved highly profitable.

In 1976, Turner made a strategic move to reach an even larger audience through the use of satellite technology. He rebranded once again, changing his company’s name to Turner Broadcasting Company. During the late 1970s, he conceived the idea for an all-news network. Cable News Network (CNN) first aired in 1980, but six years later it was in the black. In 1985, Turner used some of his profits to buy Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM). Also in the 1980s, Turner began coloring films but eventually decided the cost was impractical.

In 1992, he created the Cartoon Network in addition to launching Turner Network Television (TNT) and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). In 1996, with Turner Broadcasting a leader in both the television and Internet industries, Turner sold the company to Time Warner for $7.5 billion dollars. After the merger, Turner stayed on and ran the company’s cable networks, including Home Box Office (HBO). In 2001, Time Warner merged with America Online (AOL). The following year Turner took a stab at an entirely new business venture, a steakhouse serving bison, called Ted’s Montana Grill.

Akhenaten, the Heretic Pharaoh: A Different View

Akhenaten, the Heretic Pharaoh, took on the might of the priesthood of Amun-Ra and, enforced by the military, temples were shut down, and the names of the gods were hacked out from statues and inscriptions the length and breadth of Egypt. All the gods were banned and everyone had to worship the Aten. Akhenaten and his family, more concerned about their new religion, left the empire unprotected and weakened – an ineffectual king more interested in poetry and nature rather than ruling. Statues and inscriptions depict Akhenaten and his family with long thin necks, sloping foreheads and elongated skulls, and this has led to claims that the king suffered from various disorders—or even that he was female. An ugly misshapen man struggling with his own mental and physical abnormalities. This is the story that most history books will tell you, but is it true?

Ted Loukes, independent researcher in the field of ancient civilizations, will pull back the curtain on the history of the ‘Heretic Pharoh’ in his fascinating premier Talk with an Expert chat with Ancient Origins Premium.

In this intriguing, well-written and apparently very well-researched book an enthusiastic Ted Loukes tries to make a case for Egyptian Crown Prince Tuthmose V (son of Amenhotep III/Queen Tiye and Akhenaten’s older brother) and Moses having been the same person. Mr. Loukes concedes that his is one theory among many and that it contradicts some widely-held assumptions (e.g. that Tuthmose actually died before the end of his father’s reign) but it all sounds quite plausible except for some nagging questions :

How can the few generations from Jacob to Tuthmose V have spanned the 430 years the Israelites are supposed to have been in Egypt ?

Why would Tiye have to hide her baby from his father ? Despite the threat that his reign would end at the hands of a child born to the Israelites Amenhotep III surely wouldn’t have killed his own first-born son ?

Where does Moses’ brother Aaron suddenly spring from. Is he supposed to be Horemheb ?

(It is quite possible that I missed some cues in the wealth of information contained in the book).


Upcoming Loukes Family Reunions

Pedigree charts and family group records are important genealogical tools, so bringing or creating on site a big family pedigree (or family tree) is sure to draw attention at the same time, have plenty of blank family group sheets available for individual families to complete and submit to go into a "Loukes family record book," which you can then digitize and share -- you can then bring the physical book back to the next reunion, adding new families each time. The article "Family Reunions Don't Always Turn Out as one has Pictured" may provide you with tips for hosting a successful Loukes reunion.


History of Mme Loukes & the Accomodation House

In 1912 the first paper rolled off the Powell River Paper Mill and Mme Loukes, Elma, sailed in on a friend’s yacht and docked mill-side. These were early days for Townsite which had only become a company town in 1910. The pre-planned ‘Garden City’ would not be completed until 1930.

Elma decided then and there that she was going to move here and set up shop. Born in New Orleans, she was a highly skilled seamstress, dressmaker and designer who saw great potential in the newly formed town. Her first business location was at the Rodmay Hotel, her second location was the top floor of the Patricia Theatre.

According to Beatrice Kent, (nee Innes), Mme Loukes was initially married to a man with the surname Peacock who she divorced and then married Mr. Loukes. She and Mr. Loukes had two sons, Barry and Patrick. One of her sons was later a school teacher in Victoria and the other, a prominent architect in Portland, Oregon.

During her years in Townsite she established herself as the dressmaker, designer for spectacular gowns strutted out by the town ladies at the yearly PaperMakers Ball. Elma’s gowns were one-of-a-kind and you considered yourself very special if you got to wear one! The customers she catered to were the wives of top-level mill employees, as well as, people with professional careers.

In a news article about the PaperMakers Balls, it reads “Dresses were purchased at Madame Loukes’ exclusive 5th Avenue Dress Shop on Marine Avenue in Westview Village. Loukes sold top-of-the-line dresses purchased on buying trips to Vancouver and New York. Her taste was impeccable.”

“Madame Loukes had an elite store with high-fashion goods in Westview she had no competition in the area,” said Ruby Roscovich, who turned 100 in 2016. “She catered for an exclusive clientele of mill management and professional people. Local people wanted to dress in elegant clothes for events such as the Old Time Dance Club and the Papermaker’s Ball, which were held in Dwight Hall.”

In 1930, during the depression times, when Marine Ave was a dirt road, she built this house and her 5th Ave Dress Shop next door, modeled after 5th Ave in New York City.

Mme Loukes’ architect son visited a few years ago. He told us that when his mother built her house it was outstanding in its modernity of design and had the largest window on Marine Ave. We have not made many changes. The original lathe and plaster walls, cove ceilings, gymnasium quality maple floors and original baseboards are in still in prime condition. The fireplace is intact from the 1930’s, as well as the blue bathtub and sink. The original wrought iron fence and gate are still in prime condition.

Mme Loukes was known in the region for operating a high class business however, we’ve also heard that she had a gambling den operating in the back room!! It would appear as though Mme Loukes was a true entrepreneur ahead of her time.

Brooks was born in the rural Midwestern town of Sterling, Illinois, and spent a large part of his life living there. [6] He is an alumnus of Hamilton College, earning his B.A. in English literature in 1966. [6] He later obtained a J.D. degree from Washington and Lee University. He was a practising attorney before becoming a full-time author. [6]

Brooks had been a writer since high school, writing mainly in the genres of science fiction, western, fiction, and non-fiction. [6] One day, in his early college life, he was given a copy of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, which inspired him to write in one genre. [6] While Tolkien inspired the genre, Brooks stated during his TEDxRainier talk "Why I Write about Elves", [7] as well as at the Charlotte Literary Festival that he credits the inspiration of his style of writing to William Faulkner's works. [7] With this inspiration, he then made his debut in 1977 with The Sword of Shannara. [6]

After finishing two sequels to The Sword of Shannara, Brooks moved on to the series which would become known as the Landover novels. [6] Brooks then wrote a four-book series titled The Heritage of Shannara. [6] For the next fourteen years, he wrote more Landover books, then went on to write The Word and Void trilogy. Continuing the Shannara series, Brooks wrote the prequel to The Sword of Shannara, titled First King of Shannara. He then wrote two series, The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara and High Druid of Shannara and finished a third, Genesis of Shannara, a trilogy bridging his Word and Void and Shannara series. The sixth book in the Landover series, A Princess of Landover, was released in August 2009. Returning to Shannara, a duology, Legends of Shannara, taking place after the events of Genesis of Shannara, was written next. The first book, entitled Bearers of the Black Staff, was released in August 2010 and the second, The Measure of the Magic, was released in August 2011. He next completed a trilogy entitled The Dark Legacy of Shannara. The three books are Wards of Faerie (Feb 2013), Bloodfire Quest (June 2013), and Witch Wraith (Dec 2013). He followed this with the trilogy Defenders of Shannara, which include The High Druid's Blade (July 2014), The Darkling Child (June 2015), and The Sorcerer's Daughter (May 24, 2016). According to his website, he is currently working on the final and concluding tetralogy of the Shannara series known as The Fall of Shannara. The first book in the tetralogy is The Black Elfstone and was released on June 13, 2017. The second book in the series is The Skaar Invasion released on June 19, 2018. The third book in the series is The Stiehl Assassin published on May 28, 2019. The fourth and final book in the tetralogy is The Last Druid, published on October 20, 2020.

A television series based on the Shannara works, entitled The Shannara Chronicles, began showing on MTV in January 2016. The show starts with the second book of the original series, Elfstones, as there are strong female roles which did not appear in the first book. [8] The second season aired in 2017 on Spike TV. [9] On January 16, 2018, it was announced that the series had been cancelled after two seasons. [10] Producers later announced that the series is being shopped to other networks. [11]

Terry has written a number of other books, based on movies, science fiction and his own life. Novels include Hook, based on the movie of the same name, first published November 24, 1991 and republished in 1998. Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace was published April 21, 1999 with four differing dust jacket covers. His own writing life is reflected in two stories, Sometimes the Magic Works: Lessons from a Writing Life, published February 3, 2004, and Why I Write About Elves published in 2005. A science fiction book, Street Freaks, was released on October 2, 2018. Terry has written a number of e-book short stories which are published a book titled Small Magic with his other short stories. [12]

Brooks resides in Seattle, Washington, with his wife, Judine. [6]

After writing "Indomitable", a short story constituting an epilogue to The Wishsong of Shannara, Terry Brooks declared:

I find it much harder to write short stories than long fiction. I feel cramped by the lack of space and the dictates of the form. There is considerable difference in long and short fiction disciplines, and I am not good with the latter. I hope not to have to do many more of them, but you never know. I must have written "Indomitable" anywhere from four to five times, each effort different. Give me a five hundred page sprawl as an assignment any day. [13]
