THE MAN OF BACKA
(Brastad, Bohuslän, Sweden, c.1900 BC)

The Man of Backa is a well-known rock carving near Brastad in Bohuslän. The petroglyph shows a Man with a complicated map above him. He tells about a secret sailing route via the Faroes, Iceland and Greenland to the Labrador Coast and Newfoundland, Canada. He also tells the story of the Egyptian discovery of America via the Bering Sea by king Menkaure of the Fourth Dynasty (c.2570 BC). The four Atlantic crossings were subsequently discovered by three kings of the Fifth Dynasty. It appears the glyph dates from the Twelfth Dynasty (Ear-ly Bronze Age, c.1900 BC).
