OMG! Totonac voladores in Tanum, Sweden . . . c. 1200 BC!
This one wins the cake! I am currently enhancing photos of sections of the Tanum Bronze Age petroglyphs in Sweden to use in the next video about petroglyphs. I noticed a strange-looking engraving and blew it up. Its a petroglyph of voladores . . . except that this petroglyph was probably created around 1600 BC to 1200 BC and the location is on the edge of the North Sea in Sweden! There are three explanations. (1) This ceremony originated in Bronze Age Sweden and was introduced to the Totonac People by Swedish mariners, (2) Some mariners sailed from Sweden to the Gulf Coast of Mexico and observed the ceremony then returned to Sweden to tell folks about it, . . . or (3) The Totonac National Champion Voladores Team went on a worldwide tour in 1200 BC to promote tourism to Mexico. You go figure.
