Irish scientists radically change understanding of migration patterns

Irish scientists radically change understanding of migration patterns

Why is there a network of ancient inscribed boulders in the Gold Belt of the Georgia Mountains, which have identical petroglyphs to those on Bronze Age boulders in Southwest Ireland and the Atlantic Coast of the  Iberian Peninsula?

Why is the Savannah River Uchee and Muskogee-Creek word for water exactly the same as the word for water on the western edge of Europe during the Bronze Age?

Why is the 2000 year old Deptford Style pottery on the Lower Savannah River identical to the Irish Beaker Cordware style of the Bronze Age?

Irish scientists have interpolated DNA and linguistic research to reach surprising conclusions.    Proto-Irish Gaelic developed in Ireland and then spread southward along the Atlantic Coast of Europe.  It did not originate where the first Celts appeared.  Basically,  the Irish and Scots are not Celts.

The first inhabitants of Ireland were kin to the peoples of the Mediterranean Basin.  It is not clear where the ancestors of modern Irish and Scots came from right now, but the evidence is overwhelming that both they and the aboriginal people of Ireland were seafaring folks, who regularly traveled through the Atlantic’s waters.

The following two tabs change content below.
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.



    so, I listen to shortwave at night …wtww 5085 . last night I listened to Art Bell’s Midnight in the Desert. They were discussing what they called America’s Stonehenge. (pardon sp errors..)
    the guest said they have a property in the northeast that they call America’s Stonehenge (sp?) (seems to be a tourist event..). the guest described large stone walls/structures/etc. same as Richard Thornton talks about in the southeast :o) .
    the guest talked about carbon dating/native americans/ norsemen etc etc , but I was not convinced he really knew what he was talking about. But… what really caught attention, he talked about stone structures they have that were built like a beehive with a tunnel shaped entrance (igloo..). Richard, I think you have talked about and asked info about those…

    I emailed peopleofonefire’s address and suggested their visiting. there was a site given,… I think . (or, maybe He needs to talk Richard for some enlightenment…..

    (I have not looked yet, but I think there will be some information at the Midnight in the Desert site…..who/what/etc)


    Richard, this is more data that there was a migration from the North America towards the East … More clues and data every year. Man has been sailing the seas for at least 40,000-50,000 years.
    “And it came to pass, as they journeyed East, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there”. “Baalbek?” N 34.007.
    Atlantis (IS) and Tarshish (Spain) cities were also built on a plain. Perhaps these ancient engineers selected plains for their sea faring civilization. Their symbol for their civilization perhaps was the “concentric circles” found in Georgia and Europe.


    There is a book titled “When Scotland Was Jewish” you might be interested in. It lists all of the Scottish Clans that were originally Jews who helped the Normans conquer Britain. They were made governors over the Celts by the King because they could read, write and had methods of counting high numbers.

    I know this because through my father’s mother’s side we are descendants of Sir Oliver Mowat (Canada) whose father came from Scotland to Canada. The Mowats were also spelled Mohaut and prior to that were the Monte Alto family of Italy and France. The first known Monte Alto was a man named Ioseph Iudea de Monte Alto (Joseph of Judea, Most High) in the 200’s who was a personal doctor to the Caesar. His family left Jerusalem in 70AD when the temple was destroyed and made their way into France and Italy. One family came from the line of Judah and another from the line of Benjamin, supposedly. Not sure how true that is but because back then it was easy to make stuff up but I doubt anybody would pretend to be Jewish when Jews were being killed for being Jewish.

    The Celtic people are said to have first appeared inland and made their way west when the Slavic people drove them out. The tendency of Irish and Scottish people to have red hair suggests North African origins. Several mummies in Egypt had red hair.

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.

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