Ashley currently lives in Colombia, South America where he is filming a new documentary series. He regularly travels to Scotland to film and present the top-rated history series The Peoples History Show on STV.
In his 20's Ashley was based in Caithness on the north east coast of Scotland and walked thousands of miles across ancient Neolithic landscapes collecting flint artefacts, which led to the discovery of significant Neolithic settlements. Having delivered a series of highly acclaimed lectures on the international Science Festival Circuit about his discoveries, he has since written four bestselling non-fiction books. Elected as a member of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, incorporated by Royal Charter in 1783, Ashley has been involved in a wide range of historical and scientific research projects which are detailed in the Projects and Science Festival pages on this website.
In 2009 Ashley became resident Historian on STV’s The Hour Show and has since featured as an expert Historian on several documentaries. Having a unique insight into the craft skills of ancient builders, the inner workings of ancient religions, esoteric philosophies, bizarre sub-cultures and secret societies, in 2012 NBC’s hit adventure travel show Legend Quest filmed Ashley's adventures across forty countries. Following legends and myths associated to lost artefacts and relics, Ashley's documentaries take viewers to some of the most dangerous and forbidden places on earth.
