Did the Mayans get to Georgia? Historian believes 1,100-year-old rock terraces found near mountain show peasants fled to U.S.

Look at this: The remains were first found by retired engineer Carey Waldrip, pictured, when he went walking in the area in the 1990s

We know how the Mayans built astonishing temples in Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras – but now it’s been suggested some fled their dissolving civilisation and may have even ended up in Atlanta.

Historian and author Richard Thornton believes a 1,100-year-old archaeological site shows that peasants fled Central America and ended up in the North Georgian mountains near Blairsville.

His astonishing theory is based on the discovery of 300 to 500 rock terraces and mounds on the side of Brasstown Bald mountain that date to 800AD – around the time the Mayans began to die out.

But not everyone is impressed by Mr Thornton’s theory. He cited University of Georgia archaeology professor Mark Williams in an article in the Examiner, reported the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

‘I am the archaeologist Mark Williams mentioned in this article,’ Professor Williams said on Facebook. ‘This is total and complete bunk. There is no evidence of Maya in Georgia. Move along now.’
