Nordic navigation of the ocean began during Stone Age, according to Swedish archaeologists

In a news release, published this week by the University of Gothenburg in southwest Sweden, archaeologists announced their discovery that several famous petroglyphs on the North Sea coast of Sweden, which were always thought to be from the Bronze Age, actually date from the Neolithic Period. The article does not directly state it, but the occupants of that part of Sweden at that time were Sea Sami, not modern Germanic Swedes. Their DNA would have been virtually identical to the occupants of Windover Pond (6,000 BC) in east central Florida. Both peoples practiced a unique burial custom in which bodies were staked down to the bottoms of shallow ponds.

Continued research in the early history of southern Scandinavia is highly relevant to Uchee, Chicksaw, Creek and Seminole descendants in the Southeastern United States. They share the same sacred symbols as the Bronze Age Peoples of Scandinavia, western Ireland and Galicia in the Iberian Peninsula. They shared the same words for medicinal herbs and healers (medical doctors today). There are probably several more shared words, if we look close enough.

The Swedish Stone Age petroglyphs (including the elkheads) appear on several petroglyphic boulders in Northeast Georgia . . . including the Track Rock Petroglyphs. In fact, a key indicator of Uchee ancestry is a peculiar combination of Sami, Finnish and Basque ancestry, when no known ancestors came from those regions during the Colonial Period.

The voledores of Tanum, Sweden

Not convinced of Bronze Age communication between Scandinavia and North America? I have identified petroglyphic sites in southern Sweden and Norway, which clearly portray the famous voledores of the Totonac People in northern Veracruz State, Mexico. It could be that in ancient times, the tradition of flying around a pole was practiced in several locations, however.
