My name is Matthew LaCroix and I am an author, ancient history researcher, and media creator who has extensively studied the secrets of lost civilizations, megaliths, planetary cycles, and ancient texts for well over a decade.
This journey of uncovering the secrets from these mysterious lost civilizations and striving to understand our ancient origins would forever change my life, putting me on a path that would eventually lead me to make a major discovery in eastern Turkey in early 2023, where I found evidence of a previously unknown civilization that showed signs of being highly sophisticated in megalithic building, as well as culturally and spiritually advanced.
As the scope of the discoveries grew, it became apparent that sites like Ayanis may not only contain the first cross, but could very well be the oldest temple on Earth - connecting back to the origins of nearly every lost civilization around the world, from Peru and Bolivia, to Egypt and China.
I gave this lost culture the name 'the Ararat Civilization' and founded my own company called Ayanis Legacy after it - named in honor of the most sacred temple, in order to discover and preserve its ancient teachings that may change all of history in the future.
~Please help me on this journey to uncover the secrets of the Ararat Civilization and tell it's forgotten story to the world..But I can't do it without YOUR contributions and support.
Matthew LaCroix is a passionate writer and ancient history researcher who grew up exploring the mountains of northern New England. After college, his focus became studying archeology, ancient civilizations, physics, and history - and at age 32, he published his first major book entitled: The Illusion of Us.
In 2019, Matthew released his second book: The Stage of Time, which seeks to unravel the mysteries of the lost civilizations of antiquity, the ancient catastrophes that destroyed them, and a library of the greatest knowledge they left behind.
In 2023, he released his third book co-written with Billy Carson entitled: The Epic of Humanity, and went on to make a major archeological discovery near Lake Van in Turkey, where he found evidence of a previously unknown lost civilization - known as the Ararat Civilization, which would become the focus of his career in the future.
This led Matthew to start his own company called Ayanis Legacy, which focuses uncovering and documenting the secrets of the Ararat Civilization through archaeological discoveries, film creation, and books.
Matthew has appeared on shows such as Ancient Civilizations and Beyond Belief on Gaia, The UnXplained on the History Channel, and hosted his own show called Mystery School of Truth on 4biddenknowledge TV.
