More Maps...

The previous are but a few of the maps. Here are a few more, that you can research further if interested[1]:

  • Zeno Map: Drawn in 1380, accurately outlines coasts of Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, and Scotland, as well as the exact latitude and longitude of a certain number of islands- though the chronometer (necessary for longitude) was not invented until 1765. Also shows Greenland free of glaciers as it was prior to the Ice Age.
  • Camerio Map: From 1502, uses spherical grid- though the middle age still believed the earth was flat.
  • Andrea Benincasa Map: From 1508, indicates that Northern Europe was being covered by the Ice Age glaciation's furthest advance.
  • Iehudi Ibn ben Zara map: From 1487, it has remnants of glaciers in Britain, and detailed profiles of islands in the Mediterranean and Aegean seas- the islands are still there, but now under water.
  • Hamy King Chart: From 1502, it indicates norther Siberian rivers emptying into the Arctic Ocean, but are now under ice. The chart also shows glacial actions in the Baltic countries, and even shows an ancient Suez canal. It also shows what are today huge islands in southeast Asia, but joined to land.
  • Ptolemy's Map of the North: Shows a glacial sheet advancing across south central Greenland, as well as glaciers retreating from Northern Germany and Southern Sweden.
  • Gloreanus Map: From 1510, it shows the exact line of the Atlantic coast of America from Canada to Tierra del Fuego, as well as the whole length of the Pacific coast.
  • King Jaime World Chart: From 1502, it shows the Sahara Desert as a fertile land with huge lakes, rivers, and cities. Of course, this was true- a very long time ago.
  • Dulcert Map: From 1339, it traces from Ireland to the Don River of Eastern Europe.
