This is an extremely important asset for those of us, who are researching the early history of mankind in the Southeastern United States. The DNA was obtained from “chewing gum” at a site very close to the Nykőping Petroglyphs, which date from around 2000 BC. Almost all of the symbols on Georgia’s famous Track Rock Petroglyphs can be found at Nykőping.
The drawing above compares photos of symbols at Nykőping to Boulder Six at Track Rock Gap.
Many people of Uchee, Creek and Chicksaw descent are showing up with the totally unsuspected DNA markers of the Sami, Finns, Karolians, Pre-Celtic Irish, Maori Polynesians and Basque. The people of Bronze Age Scandinavia also carried these DNA markers. They were not Germanic, but from western Asia. This discovery is strong evidence for re-interpretation of such DNA markers in Native American descendants. Since they are not the result of Post-Columbian immigration, they should be classified as Native American.
