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.
