Aboriginal occupants of British Isles and Scandinavia were from Central Asia!
This is an important fact that no one is telling you! Keep it in mind, whenever you read an article about the genetics of the Americas. There are no DNA test markers for the indigenous peoples of the Southeast. All current theories about the origins of indigenous Americans are based on total ignorance of the genetic makeup of, by far, the most densely populated region of Pre-Columbian North America.
David Reich, a geneticist at Harvard University, has made a discovery that explains why the Uchee of the Southeast could have migrated across the Atlantic Ocean, as they have always claimed, yet have Asiatic features. From around 8,000 BC to 1500 BC or perhaps even 1200 BC, the people of these regions would have resembled mixed-blood Native Americans. This astonishing genetic fact means that all of the Bronze Age petroglyphs of the region, which are virtually identical to petroglyphs of the Georgia Gold Belt, were probably made by the same Central Asiatic people. All stages of Stonehenge on the Salisbury Plain in England and Skara Brae in the Orkney Islands were built by Central Asiatic peoples. The aboriginal ancestors of the people, who would become American Indians have also been traced to Central Asia.
Strong chronological association between events in Pre-Iron Age Europe and North America
- The earliest versions of Stonehenge appeared in Alberta and eastern Canada then five hundred years later in Ireland, Wales and England or around 3500 BC.
- The construction of the oldest mounds in Georgia and Louisiana . . . which are the oldest in North America . . . coincided with the appearance of stonehenges in Canada. The radiocarbon date for the base of the Bilbo Mound in Savannah is 3545 BC.
- The appearance, around 2500 BC, of the earliest pottery in North America, near Savannah, coincides with the abandonment of Skara Brae in the Orkney Islands of Scotland.
- The earliest shell rings on the South Atlantic also date from this period, but the great Fig Island, SC Shell Structure Complex coincides with a 20-year long rainstorm in Ireland and England, which nearly depopulated the landscape or around 2350 BC.
- Construction of THE Stonehenge on the Salisbury Plain began shortly after the 20 years of rain. It involved hauling blue stones (dolomitic limestone) 140 miles from Wales . . . where the earliest copies of Canadian stonehenges are found. Keep in mind that the builders of all these stonehenges looked like the people above or mixed-heritage Native Americans.
- The appearance of newcomers to Poverty Point, Louisiana and the coast of Vera Cruz coincides with the first invasion of Indo-Europeans into southern England or around 1600 BC.
- The invasion of southern Scandinavia occurred around 1200 BC, shortly after a massive storm or tsunami devastated the landscape of Denmark and coastal southern Sweden. This time period coincides with the probable arrive of the Uchee’s ancestors at the mouth of the Savannah River. Their culture was called the Deptford Culture after the Deptford Mound in Savannah. Deptford pottery was very similar to the Cord-marked Beaker pottery of southern Scandinavia and Ireland.
- The transition from the Deptford Culture to the Cartersville Culture coincides with the end of the Bronze Age in Europe or around 5-400 BC.
