Photos . . . comparing Swedish Bronze Age petroglyphs to those in the Georgia Mountains

Photos . . .  comparing Swedish Bronze Age petroglyphs to those in the Georgia Mountains


Take a look again at these images.   I have sent them to some Swedish and Danish anthropologists.   I don’t think they believe me, but these photos are for real. Note that the concentric circles in both Sweden and North Georgia have a “drain channel” carved into them.  Several of the other glyphs on the Track Rock Boulders also have those “drain channels.”   

Under arbetet för Stadsarkitektkontoret såg jag flera petroglyfer i södra Sverige, som också var heliga symboler för mitt inhemska folk, Creek indianerna. Under hela min karriär som arkitekt gjorde det mig alltid förbryllat. Men under de senaste 10 åren har mitt arbete blivit mer som arkeologi. Jag har gjort dessa upptäckter i bergen där jag bor, vilket kommer att ändra historiens böcker.  Det visar sig att en gren av Creek indianerna, Uchee, alltid har hävdat att de har korsat Atlanten. De bär mycket samiska och baskiska DNA.  Jag trodde att ditt universitet skulle vara mycket intresserad av denna information.  Tack så mycket för den varma gästfriheten som jag fick i Skåne. Min flickvän var en lagstudent vid Lund. Jag deltog i många danser där.   Tak så mycket igen!     Arkitekt Richard Thornton

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.



    The Sprayberry rock looks to have the same circle patterns as well. You are definitely on to something.

  2. Ed, I have a feeling that there are many more petroglyph sites in the mountains here, which few people know about. I was recently contacted by a POOF reader, living near Helen, GA. She said that she and her husband have visited several petroglyphic boulders around the Nacoochee Valley, which look like the Reinhardt Boulder or Tugaloo Stone, which archaeologist Robert Wauchope never visited, because World War II started up.


    I’ve shared one of your posts that’s very similar to this one with some other people interested in archaeology. They all said this has been debunked, without giving sources. They said similar works arise spontaneously in different areas. Round houses and moccasins I accept, but not necessarily artwork. I wonder what your response is. Would Caucasians be reading the work of the academic people who have all devalued or ignored history and artifacts in Native America? It seems to me the evidence you uncover makes up very convincing cases.

    • The question Debra is, who debunked it, and why? Have they thoroughly studied Georgia’s petroglyphs? Did they live in the heart of Bronze Age Scandinavia and learn about the Bronze Age peoples there by working in the same office with Swedish archaeologists? You see my pedestrian village was on top of a Bronze Age village and near a Bronze Age shrine with petroglyphs identical to those in Georgia. We have petroglyphs that portray Bronze Age sailing ships in the same manner as they were portrayed in southern Scandinavia. Also, we Uchee descendants are showing up with Sami DNA. The Uchee have always said that they came from across the Atlantic and first landed near Savannah. I would be willing to bet that the anonymous debunker didn’t know any of these facts.


        I’m not doubting you. Possibly I was testing the others to see how informed they truly are, and I was disappointed. I think they are of the old school, only believing those with academic titles, the ones who didn’t truly appreciate our ancestry. I had a friend like that. He started to see the light after he discovered that what I’d been telling him for several years about another branch of my Mohican family was true. A distant cousin-friend doesn’t know it, but he corroborated your research. He’s a careful man; I knew him several years before he told me this ancestor came from the same Mohican band as mine. I have several Native ancestors from the Appalachians and the Southeast, but that’s about all I know. I read your blogs with great interest because you help me get closer to the truth.

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.
