    It's basically the continental shelf and almost mirrors the path of the gulf stream.

    you got that right.....this is right up your alley,

    In the depths of the Black Sea lies a landscape of eternal darkness. With no light and no oxygen in the sea’s anoxic layer, no life can survive, except perhaps the ghosts of ancient mariners whose ships foundered thousands of years ago.

    There are a range of artifacts & traditions (Monolithic Axes, shell gorgets, discoidals/ball courts, spuds, ear spools, flat topped mounds, face pots, long bifaces, copper plates, etc.) that show up in the South East US, Caribbean, Northern South America, Central America, Mexico, up through TX into the Mississippi & Ohio river valleys. There is certainly some commonality, and few archaeologists would disagree with that. Alfred Kroeber wrote about it, and called it indirect cultural diffusion.What I think is a mistake, is to say that the Mayans (outside of modern indigenous immigrants from Chiapas, Guatemala, and the Yucatan) made it to Florida, there simply isnīt any evidence of that. Where ever Mayans went, they left a lot of specific traits that are missing in the US. Again, thatīs not to say there wasnīt influence, but it could have been reverse. Poverty Point could have influenced the early Mayans, vs the other way around.

    Fascinating thread Tnmountains! There is a huge mound very close to where I live that has always fascinated me,only one I've ever seen and I did some research on it. I definitely think the Mayan influence is there in some of the artifacts recovered.

    every island in the Caribbean was populate pre-Columbus. Florida points down to Cuba like a bird dog on a scent and Cuba points to the Yucatan like my wife pointing out my flaws....Miami to Cancun is closer than Miami to New Orleans. Add to that the growing evidence that the Mayans were a seafairing people....

    Google

    ...and it starts to look rather like Arab Muslims a 1,000 years ago. They spread trade, culture and religion fromMecca to Morocco, down the east coast of Africa, across the Indian ocean to the Philippines and deep into central Asia....

    Mayan DNA. That is a good read.. It takes for granted what we surmise on trade.

    Just one more tidbit on that platform pipe.
    While researching that very interesting find I came across this artifact found in Ecuador.

    for instance....look at Iraq and Syria today. They are Arab countries that for the most part speak Arabic and call themselves Arab....but.....through history they were Sumerians, Babylonians, Assyrians, Hittites, Moabites, Elamites, even Hebrews. Turkish people swept through, Greeks, Persians, Romans and Egyptians...Their present day DNA is as mixed as my mothers "add all the weeks leftovers" vegetable soup. This is the most studied and well documented area in the world, we have LIBRARIES of ancient texts documenting vanished empires and kings written in extinct languages. ..and we don't for a minute pretend that present day "Arabs" arose from no where, replaced the current population and created a brand new civilization from scratch.

    but American Indians....don't even go there.

    I agree. The thought process here was frozen by Archeologist and our history books. In 1881 Smithsonian was studying this very connection in the Tennessee Valley in mounds when the bat stone appeared with hebrew text. Now it seems it is a forgery or hoax pulled during that survey in 1881. Google Bat Creek Stone . We always followed this as it is in areas we hunted years ago. To bad the Creeks did not create the written language before the Cherokee. Maybe the answer is in the pottery sherds.

    ....this is amazing...a very long read but you can choose to watch it too. It is the history of cracking the Mayan code...and the amazing part is that it was a son of an archeologist that put all the clues together...
