    Very cool. It's amazing that they had so much down back then. Not perfect though, clearly there is no huge landmass like that in the Arctic, all the commercial plains that fly over it would have seen something by now. Oh wait, no commercial plains are allowed to fly over the north pole.

    Great find..........x........ N

    See also the piri reis map: https://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/e...s_pirireis.htm

    Hapgood on several maps:

    And to put the other side, here's sceptical commentary on the Orontius Finaeus map:

    Oh and this http://www.badarchaeology.com/old-ma...s-finaeus-map/


    Good discussion in the comments below that one too.

    Edit: I saw this and thought of this thread. Links Buzz Aldrin, the so called Temple of the One, Islamic depictions of Armageddon and the various ancient maps of Antarctica.
