Robert Dehoy grew up on a sheep and cattle station in the outback of Australia, in western New South Wales. Growing up in the outback gave him a strong sense of independence and was invaluable experience, whether it was for building sheds, vehicle maintenance, animal husbandry, flying planes or raising crops. His parents were also of rural stock and this gave him a solid grounding in morals and values. He attended the local primary school and then went on to a Marist Brothers boarding school, where he learnt a lot about life in general.
It was while working near Melbourne, some twenty plus years ago, that he discovered a Theosophical Bookshop. The Theosophical Society’s motto states that there is no higher religion than truth, and they attempt to stock books for all religious and philosophical beliefs from all walks of life. But it was Wallis Budges’ Amulets and Superstitions that really fired his imagination. This started a hobby (when does a hobby become an obsession?) of researching ancient history, and in particular, religious and esoteric history.
Rob has also adopted the moniker of The Naked Historian (www.thenakedhistorian.com) and similar to other naked professionals, he agrees that everything should be stripped back to the bare essentials, and built up from first principles in order to understand its true meaning (or origin).
In 2015, Robert launched his first book “Ancient Origins: The Secret, Hidden Origins of Western symbols, Myths & Legends and Customs & Traditions”.
Robert Dehoy currently lives with his wife and children in Perth, Australia and is still both a mining engineer and an author. He enjoys travelling and experiencing other cultures, learning new languages, carpentry in the back shed and sports…mainly rugby and cricket, of course!
