Welcome to Uncovered History…

Welcome to Uncovered History. We hope you find it interesting, informative and inspiring. At present this site is work in progress – and will probably always be so as History is constantly being Uncovered – so please return frequently to see what new has been added. We are currently posting information about the sites we have travelled to and the countries we visited in the process. We know from our experiences that even the best museums have very little information on display about their artefacts and that archaeological sites generally don’t even have a sign to tell you what building you are looking at! Therefore, this site is intended to help fill in the history and let you explore these amazing ancient sites armed with knowledge and understanding, whether online or in person. We hope this site inspires you to visit these amazing places and witness these incredible objects, cities and ancient civilisations with your own eyes.

About the authors…

Looking down on Machu Picchu
Looking down on Machu Picchu in 2002
My name is Robin Heyworth and together with my wife, Fritha, we have visited dozens of countries and countless historical sites and museums. Amongst our favourite destinations are: Egypt, Italy, Venice, Greece, Turkey, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, Columbia, Indonesia, Cambodia, Thailand and Loas – we have been to quite a few more though. Our absolute favourites were Mexico and Peru, which offer a unique blend of adventure and intrigue. Very little is known about the civilisations that lived there and yet they built some of the most inspiring cities in some of the most breathtaking locations found on earth. If you would like to add some of the ancient sites you have been to then please do get in touch via the email address below – we could use a little help as there are a lot of incredible historical sites out there we haven’t been to…yet!

  1. Hello

    I have come upon your site, very informative, as I am a fan of Mayan history. I like your site and I wonder if you could give me your approval to post the image of Chicanná monster (in colour) on my blog. I presume it is Robin Heyworth’s coloured image.

    Here is my blog:

    Best wishes,
    Lydia Jones

    1. Buenos dias, bonjour and good day, Andre!

      Parlez vous Anglais / habla usted Inglés?

      Can you email archives@uncoveredhistory.com with the image reference (e.g. W0519) or a link to the image? I am always very happy when people consider my images worthy of their publications and I normally just ask for a copy of the published book in return for publishing rights.

      Best wishes, Robin

  3. I just stumbled onto your fabulous website while searching for ancient ruins. I’ve gotten hooked on building collections of photos on Pinterest (found under brannan2540, if you are interested). One collection (called “boards”) I titled “Reflective Ruins.” In it, I’ve included photos of ruins from the major regions of the world. I would appreciate your permission to include some of your excellent photos in my “Middle America’s Ruins” and “South America’s Ruins” subsections. Pinterest retains the website source for all posted (“penned,” ha) photos unless they are copied by someone and “pinned” in their name. I never do that. I especially delight in your photos of relatively unknown sites. I try to do that, foregoing the Travel Sites’ familiar photos. I’m 76 yrs. young, blind in one eye and losing sight in the other – which is why it’s important to me to see as much of the world’s wonders as I can. Your website is an appreciated part of my quest. Thank you. Be safe, be well, be happy.

    1. Hi James, Thank you for the amazing compliments – I’m really pleased you are enjoying the site. I would be honoured to have my photos included in your Pinterest board, so go for it! All the best, Robin
