Stella Novus was established in Ireland in 2016, to create, deliver and promote quality Content. The company’s first project was Ancient Origins, a news and educational website specializing in archaeology, ancient history, human origins and mythologies from all over the world. The purpose of Ancient Origins is not just to present articles, but to increase awareness of human history, different civilizations and cultures around the world, and the importance of using the past to define our future. Our approach is to encourage critical thinking and an ‘always questioning’ mentality of what we think we know about history.
With no external funding, and just through the two co-founder’s personal effort and experience in content creation and digital marketing, Ancient Origins has grown rapidly to become No 1 worldwide in its category, with more than 8 million views per month, more than 150 contributors, 13,000+ articles.
Our projects expanded in 2017 by offering a Premium Ancient History website, providing extended content, webinars, exclusive interviews, eBooks and more.
In 2018 we launched the Ancient Origins Magazine, based on popular demand.
In 2019 we launched Ancient Origins Expeditions and in 2020 Ancient Origins Tours.
2021 will be a landmark year, where we launch Ancient Origins DNA and Ancient Routes, our two brand new projects.
Recently Ancient Routes was awarded the EU seal of Excellence, and this year Stella Novus reached the finals at the SFA National Small Business Awards 2021.
