Update: POOF is seeking help from Bronze Age specialists in Europe

Update: POOF is seeking help from Bronze Age specialists in Europe


Why in the world are European Bronze Age sacred glyphs and boats carved onto boulders in Northeast Georgia, USA?  Why would Bronze Age High Kings in southern Scandinavia,  plus Great Suns (High Kings) of the Mayas and Creeks’ ancestors 2,400 years later use exactly the same glyph.  Why are the Maya glyphs meaning Kukulkan or Quetzalcoatl  carved on a boulder at Track Rock Gap along with glyphs associated with the Bronze Age petroglyphs of Jutland Island, Denmark and Southwestern Sweden?  Why was a triangular temple with a stone sacrificial altar built at the Nodoroc mud volcano?  Why did the Pre-Gaelic people of Ireland and western France use the same word for water as the Uchee and Muskogee Creeks?  Why is the word, Uchee, itself almost identical to the Gaelic word for water?  Why is Deptford Style Pottery in the Savannah Area almost identical to the pottery being made at that time in Ireland, Scotland and Scandinavia.  I just don’t know.



I am sending high resolution, high contrast images of several of the mysterious rock carvings to archaeologists and art historians in England, Ireland, Sweden and Denmark, who specialize in the Bronze Age cultures . . . along with a plea for help.    If you recall, several years ago, we were stonewalled in interpreting the Sweetwater Creek Stela until the Anthropology Department at the University of Puerto Rico helped us.  Hopefully, this “mayday” call will be answered also.

Well, four years ago I sent a snail mail letter to HRH Prince Charles, which asked for his help in locating the documents containing the Creek Migration Legends, which had been lost for 285 years.  They were shipped from Savannah to King George II then seemingly disappeared.   By golly,  the staff of Prince Charles did help me find the Lost Migration Legends!   You never can tell.

Here are some of the images that we are sending to European anthropologists and art historians:

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.



    Richard, I am adding to the list of petroglyphs. This one is on a creek near the Cane Notch Site on the Nolichucky River in East TN. Here is link to view a short movie about the site. Please note it starts showing the petroglyph rock just after 35 minutes into the movie. It is very similar to the Reinhardt Boulder.

    Hi Richard, Thanks for the pics of the petroglyphs of those boats. Fascinating.

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.

Support Us!
