The Ahnenerbe was an institute in Nazi Germany purposed to research the archaeological and cultural history of the Aryan race. Founded on July 1, 1935, by Heinrich Himmler, Herman Wirth, and Richard Walther Darré, the Ahnenerbe later conducted experiments and launched expeditions in an attempt to prove that mythological Nordic populations had once ruled the world. Its name came from a German word, Ahnenerbe, meaning "inherited from the forefathers." Originally, the official mission of the Ahnenerbe was to find new evidence of the racial heritage of the Germanic people, however due to Himmler's obsession with occultism it quickly became his own occult tool and started using pseudoscience. Formally, the group was formerly called the Study Society for Primordial Intellectual history, German Ancestral Heritage, but it was renamed in 1937 as the Research and Teaching Community of the Ancestral Heritage.
