Irish and Georgia (USA) Bronze Age petroglyphs near Tepotztlan, Mexico

by Richard L. Thornton, Architect and City Planner

Sierra de Cobre, Edo. de Morelos

One Summer in Mexico – Part 40

At the time that I photographed stone walls and petroglyphs in a baranca (ravine) of this rugged mountain range, they meant little to me. Now they have great significance because the symbols carved onto the boulders are identical to those in the Etowah River Basin of Georgia and County Kerry, Ireland. Nearby in 2016, Mexican archaeologist found the foundations of buildings totally unlike those built by previously known Mesoamerican structures. However, Mesoamerican structures were built on tops of these ruins.

  2. The Barrett Fellowship committee made me take two courses in photography, prior to going to Mexico. One in architectural photography and the other in closeup/nature photography. The problem was that back then, the cameras that students could afford were inconsistent. In general they did much better on a tripod and full light.

  3. Richard, That a match for Ancient people using stones for a teaching aid for important Star systems. I’m almost certain some of the Zokee /Olmecs were guides of Groups of peoples crossing the Atlantic. Thanks for the articles.
