Vikings and Poseidon
In a tomb at Kivak, in South Sweden (1400 BC) is a panel depicting the God Poseidon. The temple also contained gold statues of a God standing in a chariot drawn by six winged horses, surrounded by dolphins.
The statues were so tall that they touched the roof of the temple. In the Eddaic Saga of Ragnar LodBrok, it is said that on the Island of Samso there stood a forty foot high statue of a God made of wood, similar to the one in Kivak.
In Scandinavia rock drawings from the Bronze Age show figures of Gods two or three times taller than the people. Were the Gods/Goddesses of our ancestors giants?
In Northern Europe, as early as the middle Bronze Age, there was a cult of a God standing in a chariot, drawn by horses and led by a dolphin, Poseidon?
According to Swedish archaeologist, Martin P. Nilsson, the God Poseidon, came from an original homeland in the NORTH. In early times Poseidon was connected with horses, chariots and dolphins.
There are also many connections between this God, horses, chariots and dolphins in the Greek religious cults.
Homer, in his 'Illiad', portrays Poseidon as a very old God. Poseidon is said to have built the wall around Troy.
The walls around the temples in Atlantis were erected by Poseidon also, in the dawn of time.
Among the Achaens (Greeks) who descended from the Norse Sea peoples of Scandinavia and North Germany, Poseidon was considered and "older" God.
In Sparta after the North Sea peoples migrated to it, Poseidon was revived and played a dominant part in their religion.
Dorian (Greek) nobility claimed Poseidon as their tribal ancestor.
The Phillistines honored Poseidon.
In the midst of the great 'Troy Town' on the island of Atlantis, stood a temple to Poseidon. The temple of Poseidon was 183 meters in length and 93 meters wide. The statues were covered in silver. Inside the roof, gold, silver and amber were used.
The Germanic temples in pre-Christain times were extremely rich in decoration.
Herman Muller, Nordic historian, stated that the description of the temple of Poseidon, in Atlantis agrees very closely to the palaces of the Norse/Germanic Gods, Odin, Thor, Freya etc.
Even the bridge, in Atlantis, that connected the temple with the rest of the country can be recognized as the Bifrost Bridge.
The temple of Forseti in Frisia, has pillars of gold and a roof of silver.
Christianity invaded Scandinavia and Germany and baptized the inhabitants under the threat of the sword. They then destroyed what they called the heathen shrines and carried off great treasures that they found in the temples. That are probably stored in the basement of the Vatican with all our other treasures.
Scandinavian folklore tales, tell of a golden city which lies beneath the sea, where it's inhabitants were so rich that the canals and drains were made of copper.
Another tale tells of a country that sank into the North Sea. The inhabitants were so rich that they shod their horses with golden shoes and ploughed the land with silver ploughs.
There is so much rich hidden history, that clearly shows that the Norse Sea people (our Viking ancestors) traveled troughout the ancient world (1500 BC) and left culture, commerce and Gods/Goddesses in their wake.
