A boat-shaped petroglyph thought to be approximately 10,000 – 11,000 years old has been found in Norway.
Retired geologist Ingvar Lindahl discovered the 13 foot long petroglyph earlier this summer. Its age was determined based on the evidence of water levels against the stone it was found on. Archaeologist Jan Magne Gjerde describes this discovery:
You must have the light at the right angle to see the figures. They have been dated through the change of sea level. In the Stone Age, the sea was higher up, so we can date the rock carvings through elevations of land. This is how we see that these are between 10,000 and 11,000 years old.1
At this stage, this petroglyph is the oldest-dated boat petroglyph in the world.2
Although mainstream history postulates cross-oceanic journeys happened in more recent history, this find is intriguing because it demonstrates that ten to eleven thousand years ago people had knowledge of large sea-faring vessels, in theory capable of transporting many people over vast distances.
Interestingly, the date of the find goes back to the time period shortly after a great global cataclysm took place,3 after which some survivors of this cataclysm appear to have traveled around the world to re-establish the lost civilization of the sun via a sophisticated global sea-faring network.
A Global Sea-Faring Network
There is mounting evidence that shows a global civilization was established by skilled sea-farers who traveled all over the world, gradually spreading their sophisticated knowledge on engineering, architecture, navigation and agriculture, and imparting timeless wisdom based on spiritual principles and reverence for the spiritual meaning of the sun.4
The ability to travel between distant lands explains why the same symbols, building styles, alignments to the sun and stars, and similar spiritual figures and teachings can be seen again and again, despite being separated over vast distances.
In this video from Sakro Sawel, Lara Atwood explains more about the diffusion of the lost civilization of the sun:
The recent discovery of the 10,000 year old boat-shaped petroglyph in Norway indicates that knowledge of the technology required for a civilization to spread across the earth was in existence after the cataclysm, adding to the growing body of evidence that the lost civilization of the sun was established by people who braved the seas to bring the Religion of the Sun to all corners of the earth.

For example, Norwegian adventurer Thor Heyerdhal physically demonstrated how ancient cross-ocean sea-faring would have been possible with his Kon-Tiki expedition. Additionally, evidence of large vessels used in salt water have been found in ancient Egypt (see: Curry, Andrew. “Egypt’s Ancient Fleet: Lost for Thousands of Years, Discovered in a Desolate Cave.” Discover Magazine.
