We Found an ABANDONED LOST City in Georgia

We Found an ABANDONED LOST City in Georgia

A few years ago we watched an episode on the History channel. Where they talked about a possible Mayan-American Connection. In this episode they wanted to film an ancient village in Northeast Georgia they believed could be connected to the Mayans, but was denied access by the USFS. With the help of a map from Georgia we found this place. Both the Creek and Cherokee Indians used names for the province around Track Rock Gap than mean “Place of the Itza.” Join us as we explore it…

    The creek Indian was the Mayan…

    I’d love to see NASA post Lidar maps of this whole region as well as south of Ocean City NJ which is also a Mayan area, which are all over the America’s

    Does anyone have any information about Stone Mountain’s "Devils Crossroads" and the wall that used to be on top? I am very interested in this. Thanks!

    " The mountain was also home to a rock formation that was known as "Devil’s Crossroads", which consisted of a rock 200 feet in diameter and 5-10 feet thick. The rock had been rent apart by two fissures crossing the formation at right angles. In some places, they ran as deep as 5 feet and records suggest that the fissures were made in 2450 BCE. The stones were discovered to be of excellent quality and were hauled down the mountain by quarrymen in 1896." – https://www.arcgis.com/apps/MapJournal/index.html?appid=1c491f26683041b585181385fa6a67c9

    I’ve seen many places like this even not far from Atlanta; always wondering who and when stacked the stones where stacked. Same thing – with some long fence/barrier like stacks, and a whole lot of random rock piles that someone had to have purposely stacked.

    Its certainly possible that natives or even settlers just stacked them to keep farming (idk if it’s possible to tell from moss or something if they’ve sat there for a couple hundred or couple thousand years).

    A possibility I havent heard before but might make sense is that they were used as cover in battle.

    Of course the burial thing. Idk, sure would like to know, surprised there hasn’t been more scientific research into them.

    Never noticed carvings though, but will pay a little more attention next time I go to one of those spots

    WHERE is this!!??? I have lived in NE GA all of my life and never heard of this.

    What he meant was he foumd georgia hahahahahahahaha. Inbreds

  7. Brucifer Burton on September 4, 2022 at 2:58 pm

    Nothing about this site says it is Mayan and everything I have ever seen about it does not reflect archeological facts. You can’t jump all over time and places without any evidence. Where are the other "artifacts" from the "site"? Most of those trees look to be less than 100 years old and old timers looted all the good sites long ago. Were is the artifact assemblage? Until that happens this site is only protohistoric or historic terracing and stone clearing.

  8. Stephanie Ballew on September 4, 2022 at 3:03 pm

    The pointing tree wasn’t originally intended to be pointing at the petroglyphs, those were moved to the spot that they are currently in from elsewhere near the terraces, as for tombs, many were destroyed when the road was cut. The workers stole artifacts and skeletons and sold them to dealers in Atlanta, awful. I’ve explored this entire area, about 14 miles up is the collapsed fumerole. Yes, that mountain was a volcano at one point. The irrigation systems and storage ponds are still there

    Him and that man are gay for each other.

  10. lori hamlin on September 4, 2022 at 3:05 pm

    Interesting, guys. I spent my childhood clearing land for fields on the family farm in S Ga and arrowheads and other artifacts were so numerous we’d toss back on the ground. A few years back I found a petrified dugong (fresh water manatee from when the area was underwater)skeleton in a creek on the property. There is a trail across a ridge of wooded acreage that as a boy my dad drove cows to the Flint River that bordered the property during the summers to graze and retrieved them before winter. He always called it the old Indian trail. The 5th generation of family farmer has recently given up on farming and the farm is now used basically as a playground for family and friends and a few cows and other assorted animals. Treasures still turn up pretty frequently. Rocks and lighterd stumps were thrown over last 150 years in piles on fence lines. As those fence lines shifted piles were pushed into gullies.

  11. Dirt No on September 4, 2022 at 3:06 pm

    they had to be related to Mayans or Incas or some Mexican people

  12. pensnut08 on September 4, 2022 at 3:07 pm

    That’s a deer skull.

  13. Karl O on September 4, 2022 at 3:08 pm

    very cool! I’ve been to the Petroglyph site but didn’t know anything about all this. Also watched the America Unearthed episode y’all were talking about about, had mixed thoughts about it. Seeing all this though makes me want to go back and wander around the forest and explore. Thanks

  14. Mary Ann Carreon on September 4, 2022 at 3:09 pm

    Interesting looks amazing Mayan, creek,
    Cherokee it’s all we call first Nations indigenous to the north American continent call finding guys I don’t know who claims it but cool findings

  15. roger griggs on September 4, 2022 at 3:13 pm

    You ruined it with that irritating tapping noise ! goodbye !

  16. Richard Thornton on September 4, 2022 at 3:17 pm

    Guys . . . guess what? When you were at the very top of the mountain at the cliffs, you were at the royal burials. There are over a hundred hand dug tombs up there. The openings are sealed with quarried rocks laid with clay mortar. The mortar was plastered with green, white and red stucco . . . but the designs are no longer discernible.

    The snake effigy is just to the north of the lower plaza of the acropolis. Oh, I and I am an architect-city planner . . . not an archaeologist. Seriously doubt that most of the Georgia archaeologists, I have encountered would even have had the SAT scores to get into Georgia Tech’s College of Architecture. LOL They certainly don’t know about our (Creek Indians) cultural history.

    Good job . . . like all the humor.

    Is this a Jeep commercial?

  18. The GoodDad gaming on September 4, 2022 at 3:20 pm

    My grandfather told me stories he said his grandparents told him, he said they would make rock den everywhere for smaller animals for easier hunting and then when they would travel the rock forms with holes at the bottom they would set fires and use as heaters because the fire would heat the Rocks so that’s why you have a lot of those around they used them to heat the air around them and the ground so they wouldnt be so cold. Just a little told story of how they hunted and traveled

  19. John Baumgartner on September 4, 2022 at 3:21 pm

    These kind of stone walls are found anywhere in the US especially in the Appalachian Mountains. Typically they are from farmers plowing fields, finding rocks and moving the rocks out of the fields. Oftentimes they were used as property line delineations as well. Closer look in these areas may also reveal holes with stone walls around them which were most likely Cellars or basements under houses. Not sure the Indians built these.

  20. American Explorer🥕🐴 on September 4, 2022 at 3:22 pm

    Very interesting! I have been in that area many times but never hiked out the trail so I had no idea that was there. The wall at 19:19 resembles the wall at Ft. Mountain State Park. The last information I saw on it was no one knows who built it or why. It seems there is a strong possibility it’s connected to the ruins here. Great video!

    Wow… !!! My best friend, Great… We liked and enjoyed to the end. Thanks Have a happy day!

  22. Kiokee Crow on September 4, 2022 at 3:22 pm

    A sizable Mound in Augusta Ga. off Windsor Spring Rd. Perched up above Butler Creek. I’m sure the expansion of the crud scape with all of the materials purchased at the local box lumber store has plowed this in clandestine clay mound in 2 decades since I last was there.

  23. TBG on September 4, 2022 at 3:23 pm

    What’s the constant clicking sound ? Man it’s annoying.

  24. Andrea Camp-Manuel on September 4, 2022 at 3:23 pm

    I hauled my backside allllllll the way out to the Albuquerque to see petroglyphs and these are less than an hour away from me. GAH!

  25. Dirt No on September 4, 2022 at 3:25 pm

    well where do you think Indians came from

  26. charlee richter on September 4, 2022 at 3:26 pm

    Yall didnt find shit

  27. roger griggs on September 4, 2022 at 3:27 pm

    STOP the damned tapping !

  28. worddunlap on September 4, 2022 at 3:27 pm

    Why is it OK to desecrate my ancestors grave sites? Please tell me where yours are so I can repay the deed.

  29. Renegade on September 4, 2022 at 3:29 pm

    Just visit the area of stone mountain there you have it the biggest cover up of all time

  30. Julia Jones on September 4, 2022 at 3:29 pm

    Thanks you guys for sharing that. I’ve been studying it from afar for a good year now. I totally enjoyed watching.
    Have you heard about the nuclear testing facility in Dawsonville forrest? After having a meltdown in the 50s they closed up shop and abandoned it. Apparently the site is still radioactive. It looks like another interesting explore. There’s rumors about mutant animals like two headed deer and things.
    Again thanks for the video. 😃

  31. Janet Burroughs on September 4, 2022 at 3:29 pm

    Might those stone walls simply be terraces created as Farmers were attempting to clear their fields of rocks and prevent erosion. The terraces follow the contours of the hillside. The stacked stones are most likely chimney foundations from homes. The stone carvings are most certainly prehistoric and Native American…..all but where someone carved their initials…. but I have strong reservations about rest of the items being constructed prior to 1800.

  32. Jeremy Morgan on September 4, 2022 at 3:30 pm

    I think those are graves that’s covered in rocks to keep the critters from digging them up

  33. Heaven Franklin on September 4, 2022 at 3:30 pm

    Got a real life n death story if ur interested there’s a pyramid in alaska under ground given off power blasts….people have died for this information.

  34. Richard Scarlett on September 4, 2022 at 3:34 pm

    You have to imagine as well that none of those trees are there when that community was there.

  35. Getinit 56 on September 4, 2022 at 3:34 pm

    I live here. I’ve found many of these stone walls over the years. I honestly couldn’t recall where. I was a kid roaming around the woods. I need to go back to some of the places and try and recall my steps. I never stayed to the trails. I dunno.

  36. Aldape’s Express on September 4, 2022 at 3:34 pm

    Can’t believe I never heard of this channel!

  37. Beth Bartlett on September 4, 2022 at 3:34 pm

    *See: "The Adventure to Track Rock Gap Georgia Mayan Ruins"*
    on Motte Thomas Channel

    The entire hike done well.

    You’re Welcome – Enjoy!

  38. Rockin' G Ranch on September 4, 2022 at 3:35 pm

    I have a video on my channel showing some springs on our property. In that video I found a pretty long wall. I also found another (not in the video). Our property is in Union County Georgia. I have no idea if it’s ancient or more recently made. The video is called Discovering Springs.

  39. free tofilmflorida on September 4, 2022 at 3:35 pm

    Any chance to a copy of the map?

  40. Muad'dib Dark Side Of The Moon on September 4, 2022 at 3:35 pm

    If a town exist then graves exist, also whos to say this whole thing is not a big grave yard. Indians did rituals, buried they’re dead in mountains and mounds so maybe this is not a town but a retreat for rituals sacrifices.

  41. Holly and Stella Doodle on September 4, 2022 at 3:36 pm

    Holy crap, man. Get the f-ing gum out of your mouth. 🤮

  42. Timothy Thrash on September 4, 2022 at 3:38 pm

    I live Rome, Georgia and I got a rock wall that looks just like that rock wall in the woods on my property. It is mostly buried in the ground. It goes for quite a ways in the woods. There is no telling what is beneath our feet.

  43. Duane Richard on September 4, 2022 at 3:39 pm

    I just watched this. Did you question the possibility of that mountain being a temple. Those exposed stones may do deeper. That place needs to be surveyed.

  44. alaina pate on September 4, 2022 at 3:40 pm

    Those are hopewell burial mounds. Can’t dig rock but you can like it. They were probably wiped out on that hill

  45. Loagun on September 4, 2022 at 3:41 pm

    Canadian ‘Indian’ viewer: I don’t think they know they’re not supposed to say Indian down there…

  46. Best Lyrics on September 4, 2022 at 3:41 pm

    Georgia country or Georgia state???

  47. Samuel Alay on September 4, 2022 at 3:43 pm

    Thats Mayan ruins.

  48. Belinda Kennedy on September 4, 2022 at 3:44 pm

    When clearing the land for planting crops,you would have to pile up the stone from the area,maybe some where used to separate the plots of land,might not be houses.

  49. Justin Windsor on September 4, 2022 at 3:45 pm

    So many of these things in the neighborhood where I live in Ellijay Ga. Just sad that hardly anyone knows or cares about. Coosawatee river from what I understand were the creek Indians.

  50. Shelley J on September 4, 2022 at 3:45 pm

    Elbow tree ?? First I’ve heard them called that,normally they are called trail trees…..
    I would question Scott Wolters credibility before I would believe anything he said…..
    Maybe I missed it but how does a pile of rocks constitute a town/village ?
    Im thinking a new interpretation is needed for that area as well as further archeological work
