Bingo! We have a Mycenaean Match in Ole Mexico

Bingo!  We have a Mycenaean Match in Ole Mexico



A carved stela that I photographed on Cerro Gordo de Teotihuacan contains a symbol for a comet, which identical to the symbol of a comet on the Tugaloo Rock,  found in Northeast Georgia. While two of the ships pictured on the Tugaloo Rock are identical to petroglyphs in Sweden and Norway, which portrary Scandinavian Bronze Age boats, the third ship appears to be Mycenaean, Minoan or Phoenician.  A stone tablet containing Mynoan Linear A script was found near the Chattahoochee River in Columbus, GA. 

The abstract portrayal of a comet is identical on the Nyköping, Sweden petroglyphs (2000 BC), the Tugaloo Rock (Georgia), the Track Rock Petroglyphs (Georgia) and the stela that I photographed on Cerro Gordo de Teotihuacan.  But is there an obvious linguistic connection between Mexico and the eastern Mediterranean Bronze Age civilizations?   It’s a good thing that it was not a snake, because it wouldn’t have bitten me.   Guess what the Totonac, Mexica (Aztec), Mycenaean and Minoan word for a deity is?   Teo . . . as in Teotihuacan or Centeotl, the Totonac god of corn!  How about them thar apples?

The Cerro Gordo Stela. The comet is on the  right .

Richard Thornton is a professional architect, city planner, author and museum exhibit designer-builder. He is today considered one of the nation’s leading experts on the Southeastern Indians. However, that was not always the case. While at Georgia Tech Richard was the first winner of the Barrett Fellowship, which enabled him to study Mesoamerican architecture and culture in Mexico under the auspices of the Institutio Nacional de Antropoligia e Historia. Dr. Roman Piňa-Chan, the famous archaeologist and director of the Museo Nacional de Antropologia, was his fellowship coordinator. For decades afterward, he lectured at universities and professional societies around the Southeast on Mesoamerican architecture, while knowing very little about his own Creek heritage. Then he was hired to carry out projects for the Muscogee-Creek Nation in Oklahoma. The rest is history. Richard is the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the KVWETV (Coweta) Creek Tribe and a member of the Perdido Bay Creek Tribe. In 2009 he was the architect for Oklahoma’s Trail of Tears Memorial at Council Oak Park in Tulsa. He is the president of the Apalache Foundation, which is sponsoring research into the advanced indigenous societies of the Lower Southeast.



    Looking like Mighty Sweet Apples you’re plucking from the past Richard. Lovin’ that photos from your fellowship and Swedish days are assistingb in learning truths today. On the edge of my chair for the next installment . Thanks for All the correlation of information ..


    Hi Richard, My teacher of Linear B will be interested in this post. Thank you,


    Richard, Another connection to the Eastern Mediterranean Sea area? Savanna was a very ancient Sea port but based on the Carbon dates of shell rings a more ancient Sea port city did exist. Have any shell rings been found in Mexico or South America? You Sir are a genus!! And we have been clowns to believe the history… we were taught.

    • I have never heard of shell rings in Mexico, but there are shell rings in Cuba and the northern coast of South America. These are younger than the ones in Georgia, South Carolina and Florida.


        Richard, The ancient shell rings people built them to correspond to one Star sign for the entire state of Florida (Cetus) : “Although Cetus is not generally considered part of the zodiac, the ecliptic passes less than a quarter of a degree from its constellation boundary, and thus the moon, planets, and even part of the sun may be in Cetus for brief periods of time. This is all the more true of asteroids since their orbits usually have a greater inclination to the ecliptic than the moon and planets.” (An asteroid or comet strike remembered by the ancients that destroyed their Kingdom?) Why they chose Florida to build those shell rings must be important? Their ancient Sea port city must have been close by… any connection for the Creeks with the sign Cetus?

The Information World is changing!

People of One Fire needs your help to evolve with it.

We are now celebrating the 11th year of the People of One Fire. In that time, we have seen a radical change in the way people receive information. The magazine industry has almost died. Printed newspapers are on life support. Ezines, such as POOF, replaced printed books as the primary means to present new knowledge. Now the media is shifting to videos, animated films of ancient towns, Youtube and three dimensional holograph images.

During the past six years, a privately owned business has generously subsidized my research as I virtually traveled along the coast lines and rivers of the Southeast. That will end in December 2017. I desperately need to find a means to keep our research self-supporting with advertising from a broader range of viewers. Creation of animated architectural history films for POOF and a People of One Fire Youtube Channel appears to be the way. To do this I will need to acquire state-of-art software and video hardware, which I can not afford with my very limited income. Several of you know personally that I live a very modest lifestyle. If you can help with this endeavor, it will be greatly appreciated.

Support Us!

Richard Thornton . . . the truth is out there somewhere!
