Portuguese archaeologists find evidence of ancient civilization in the Azores Islands . . . linked to the Sami (Lapps)!
The Azore Islands match exactly the geographical description of Atlantis by the Greek philosopher, Plato.
This discovery could be the missing link that explains both the voyages of the Uchee across the Atlantic Ocean and the origin of the Apalache.* The Uchee said that they came across the Atlantic from the “Home of the Sun.” Uchee descendants from Georgia are showing up with Sami (Lapp), Finnish, Pre-Gaelic Irish, Basque and Panoan DNA. Apalache is the Europeanization of the Panoan word, Aparashe, which means “From the sea – descendants of.” *The real Apalache lived in a corridor from Savannah to Northeast Georgia. The Florida Apalachee began as an Apalache colony among Arawaks from Peru.
Mark Veale sent this article to the People of One Fire and it is fascinating. Portuguese archaeologist have found rock structures and petroglyphs in the Azores Islands that are pretty much identical to those in the portion of Lappland in Finland during the Late Neolithic and Bronze Ages. Also, numerous coins, minted in Carthage have been found on some of the islands in this archipelago.
Until recently the official history of the Azores was that they were uninhabited, when first discovered by mariners around 1427 AD and that there was no evidence that anyone had ever lived there earlier. A small number of alleged tombs, carved into rocks that were used for burials, have been identified on the islands of Corvo, Santa Maria and Terceira by Portuguese archaeologist Nuno Ribeiro, who speculated that they might date back 2000 years, alluding to a human presence on the island before the Portuguese. However, his interpretation was dissed by more conservative scholars, who said that these caves were natural, not man-made.
Recent archaeological work has identified petroglyphs and various stone structures in the Azores, which couldn’t possibly be natural. They are identical to worship sites in Scandinavia, when the region was inhabited primarily by ancestors of the Sami.
All references acknowledge that the Azore Islands were created by volcanoes and still contain volcanoes. No one seems to have noticed the large caldera on the eastern side of this archipelago. The Greek philosopher, Plato, stated that Atlantis was due west of the Pillars of Hercules (Gibraltar). It was on a volcanic island which exploded violently, causing Atlantis to sink into the see. Around 1200 BC a tsunami struck the Atlantic Coast of Iberia, destroying all the coastal cities. About the same time a tsunami swept over Denmark and southern Sweden, wiping out a Bronze Age civilization there. The Uchee apparently arrived in the Savannah Area a little after 1200 AD and probably are the progenitors of the Deptford Culture. If Atlantis really existed, Savannah may have been one of its overseas trading ports. The plan of the Bilbo Mound and port (3545 BC) is very similar to the Bronze Age ports on the coast of Iberia.
The aboriginal people of the Canary Islands call themselves the Guanches. It is believed that they arrived in the Canary Islands between 1200 BC and 1000 BC. The Guanches Migration Legend states that they were from Atlantis. The Guanches were still in the Neolithic Age when first contacted by the Spanish.

A second article in the same E-zine describes an equally fascinating discovery. Archaeologist working in the oldest known stone architecture in the world, Göbekli Tepe in Turkey. Despite not having any evidence of agriculture, metallurgy or pottery, the people of this region produced remarkably sophisticated stone architecture, engraved with a variety of animals and abstract symbols. Several of those symbols can be found in the tattoos of contemporary Aborigines in Australia. Australian archaeologists now believe that the Australoid people settled Australia around 55,000 BC, but may have visited there as early as 80,000 BC. To read this article, go to Australoids in Turkey.
