A map of Scandinavia
There seems to be a connection between the stone ruins that we are now documenting in Northeast Georgia and Bronze Age Scandinavia, so I thought readers might want to get a better understanding of its geography. On short notice, in early August of 1972, I was pulled off my official job at the Landskrona Stadsarkitektkotoret and asked first to travel to Stockholm to meet with a Swedish woman, who had previously lived in Atlanta. There I introduced “ice tea” to the chefs of Swedish restaurants. LOL I then traveled northward to Lapland, where I was to be a surrogate boyfriend/bodyguard for an Austrian biologist-army officer, while she traveled around the boonies up there. There were virtually no paved roads at the time. She was from the western edge of Austria, where a band of Sami had settled eons ago. So we looked like a cute, young Sami couple. She couldn’t tell me what she was doing, but I think she was taken samples of vegetation that had been contaminated by fallout from Soviet nuclear bomb explosions and reactor accidents. By analyzing the chemicals, it was possible to determine much about the nuclear explosions. Since somebody else was paying for my little vacation, I took advantage of the opportunity and explored Norway on the way home to Landskrona.
