Ana Solana and the gang

We are celebrating our first birthday! It has been an extraordinary 12 months for the team and I. A year ago, I started Ancient Explorer with just an archaeological tool kit, a library that includes archives of my very own explorations, a computer and a dream of inspiring others to become ancient explorers. Now, one year later, a community of over 6000 ancient explorers has flourished, bridging cultures and nations, while hundreds of Australian children have delved into the mysteries of the ancient world by attending our workshops and courses. This week we also celebrate the inception of Ana Solana, our first main character and the leader of Team Ancient Explorer from Latin America. With her creation came a range of products and toys for early learners and primary-aged children.

I want to capture this moment to thank sincerely our community for joining us on this adventure. We have appreciated greatly your messages, comments and participation in our competitions and classes.

As we pass this first threshold, a new exciting horizon appears. I am now writing and illustrating the very first Ana Solana book, which is expected to be released later this year along with other resources, while in the coming weeks we will announce our very first wellness and cultural retreat tour in Peru. So watch this space amigos!
