Archeologists Georgia are claiming that they have discovered some ancient Mayan ruins.
Almost everyone has been taught that the Mayan people thrived in Central America from about 250 to 900 A.D., building magnificent temples in Guatemala, Honduras, Belize and southern Mexico.
Not so… they also built temples in the mountains of North Georgia.
Richard Thornton, an architect by training, has been researching the history of native people in and around Georgia for years. He wrote about an 1,100-year-old archeological site near Georgia’s highest mountain, Brasstown Bald. Another archeologist, Taylor Manon of Atlanta said “we have positively identified this as the site of the fabled city of Yupaha, which Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto failed to find in 1540.”
Archeologist Mark Williams of the University of Georgia, doesn’t believe. “This is total and complete bunk. There is no evidence of Maya in Georgia. Move along now.”
But WWN has spoken with top archeologists from around the world that have traveled to North Georgia to examine the site. The conclusion: Thornton is right. The Mayans did have a settlement in Georgia!
Thornton, who said he is Georgia Creek Indian by birth, volunteered that doing research about Mesoamerican culture in the U.S. has been a difficult way to make a living, but is happy to be finally vindicated.
Some of his conclusions about the Mayan connection to the southern U.S., he said, are based on oral history. There are place names in Georgia and North Carolina, he said, that are very similar to Mayan words. And the ruins near Brasstown Bald, he said, include mounds and irrigation terraces similar to those found at Mayan settlements in Central America.
The Georgia Tourism board is already setting up tourist packages for those who want to see the Mayan ruins. “We think it will be a particularly hot site to see, especially this year, which the Mayans predicted would be the last for mankind.”
So, get on down to Georgia and see the Mayan ruins!!

Possibly more Mayan Indian Mounds as seen on this video link. Perhaps a Mayan connection? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EiF8xnt-gos
There is no evidence of the Maya culture in Georgia. This is a very sad publicity stunt and disgraces the true science of archaeology.
My own research has shown there was actually a Mayan gold mining operation in the mountains of north Georgia. The French and Spanish both have multiple eye-witness accounts of Native Americans mining gold in north Georgia yet hardly any gold artifacts are ever discovered in archaeological sites in the region. Who was mining the gold and what were they doing with it? The French referred to this tribe as the Potani. The Spanish said they lived in a province called Ocala and their southermost town was named Uqueten. Well interestingly, the Poton Maya in Mexico lived in a province named Acala and were also known as the Yokot’an which is where the Yucatan peninsula gets its name. I have also found multiple Mayan words in their language and Mayan glyphs on their pottery. You can read my research here:
I'm not surpised.
The only thing that surpises me is that it toke them this long to find the ruins.
Bull s…t !
Georgian clay was used to make Mayan blue paint that covered sacrifice victims. No soil samples are the same in different varying regions of the world. The soil mapping proved that it was good old Georgian clay which helped produce Mayan blue paint.. This information is not a guess, wishful thinking, or a shot in the dark. This is clear cut, concise science. Have happy research!
how would you know Lindsey??????????????are you a archaeologist or just a simple know it all?
Considering these are actual Mayan ruins, I just have one question: where's all the gold? The Mayans are pretty known for keeping huge stores of it, so I'm a little surprised there doesn't seem to be any at this site.
Mayans had no gold they had jade, which for them was more precious than gold. You probably meant the Incas.
The Maya as well as the Aztec’s traveled up into georgia to mine the kaolin from the ancient lake beds . The Aztec produced many carved artifacts using this whitish ancient clay ,and particularly Western tribes such as in the areas around Jalisco and the pre-columbian people around CeroDel Toro , and Siera Leon etc…
