Scandinavian Bronze Age Symbols Found in the Georgia Mountains
People of One Fire has published these images before, but we have several new subscribers, who are curious about the meanings of the petroglyphs in the Southern Highlands. These images will be a great deal of help in deciphering several of the petroglyphs. The reason that I instantly recognized the Tugaloo Stone as being carved by Bronze Age Scandinavians was that two of the boats on the stone were obviously portrayals of a Hjörtspring båt (Elk Stag Running – Boat). The third boat, with a sail, appears to be Minoan or Phoenician. While living in Landskrona, Sweden, I was fascinated by the exhibits in Southern Swedish and Danish museums that showed these lightly framed boats zipping up and down the Oresund Channel and on to the British Isles. The larger Hjörtspring båterna (boats) were quite capable of crossing oceans. It is highly significant that geneticists have recently discovered that the Irish Red Deer (Elk in American English) originated in southern Scandinavia, not Britain. Little did I know that in February 2017 that fascination with an odd looking Bronze Age boat would enable a major discovery in Northeast Georgia, which directly related to the origin of the Uchee People.
