Ancient Map of Atlantis

Ancient mysteries of modern man always attract particularly ancient maps of Atlantis. Look, as if through a window into the secrets hidden civilizations time helping us map our world … we never knew.

Not inferior to modern

To create accurate maps essential vessel capable of long voyages to the study area, the chronometer to determine the coordinates, as well as mathematics and cartographers to process the information.

Meanwhile, there are ancient maps drawn BC, which does not exactly give way to a modern, while on the research vessels (as the official history says) was not the question, and the same chronometer was invented by English clockmaker John Harrison only in 1761. What is used by ancient cartographers? Certainly in their possession were reliable ships and at least precision instruments, given the fact that sometimes they even surpassed the card validity modern counterparts.

Ptolemy's map

Unfortunately, so ancient originals have come down to us intact. Redraw them many times, transferred from one material to another. Mankind has tried to preserve the acquired knowledge of the world at one time may have passed unknown powerful civilization.

Piri Reis Map

In the fields of the Piri Reis map is written: "No one is currently no map like this. Composing it, I used charts and twenty eight "Mappa mundis", ie cards, called by the Arabs "Jafer" and composed in the time of Alexander the Great, which depicted the whole inhabited world. "

This map was drawn in 1513 by a Turkish admiral Piri Reis, it became part of his atlas "Kitab-i-Bahr" ("Book of the Seas"). After nearly 200 years, the surviving pieces of the atlas was published in Europe, but did not cause any interest. Only in 1956, when the card came to American military cartographers, began its systematic study that gave us a few sensations.

Sensation number one

The map shows the Americas. Surprising at first glance, because the map was completed after the voyage of Columbus. But Columbus did not conduct such a thorough description of the terrain mapping, and his expedition did not came closer to land, so he could not show the American River Delta and especially the Andes!

Let's see what he writes about Columbus Piri Reis' Invalid named Colombo, Genovese, opened the land. In the hands of the named Colombo got one book, which he read that on the edge of the Western Sea, far to the west, there is the beach and the island. There we find all sorts of metals and precious stones. Colombo aforesaid long studied this book … About passion natives to glass ornaments Colombo also learned from this book and took them with him to exchange for gold. It turns out that Columbus was a certain book, and a map that guided in swimming. We can assume that Christopher Columbus. married to the daughter of the former Master of the Knights Templar, received from him some old book and a map of America, which have become landmarks in his journey. Know where to swim — the key to success in the Age of Discovery!

Here it is more important conclusion — Map of Columbus and the Piri Reis map have the same ancient source! And how old he is, we will tell the next sensation.

Sensation number two

Piri Reis map shows the coastline of Antarctica, and traced with great accuracy! Conclusions of modern scholars suggest that Antarctica is shown on this map is to complete glaciation (that is, about 6000 years ago!).

Here is the report of American cartography: "The claim that the lower part of the map shows the Princess Martha Coast, Queen Maud Land in Antarctica, and the Palmer Peninsula, is groundless. We found this explanation is the most logical and probably correct. Geographical details portrayed in the bottom of the map, in excellent agreement with data of seismic, made through the thickness of the ice cap of the Swedish-British Antarctic Expedition in 1949. This means that the coastline had been mapped before it was covered with ice. Ice in the area has a thickness of about 1.5 km. We have no clue how this data could be obtained with the proposed level of geographical knowledge in 1513. "

Now compare: Antarctic glaciation occurred at a time when melting glaciers America and Europe. Ie We see the picture of the ancient antediluvian world! {This refers to the Flood 9612 BC, associated, according to some scholars, with a deviation of the Earth's axis.)

But if we are dealing with such a perfect ancient sources, the question remains: who and when was it created? Maybe we can help make sense of this other old cards?

Mercator map

Gerard Van Kremer (known as Mercator), Flemish cartographer and scholar, he graduated from his atlas, which includes several of his own cards in 1569. Again, we are interested in map of Antarctica, where well looked through the Amundsen Sea, Cape Gerlahera and Cape Dart on Marie Byrd Land, Island Thurston Island Alexander I. Weddell Sea, the island of paddy. Ridge Regula and other geographic features, marked on modern maps.

Mercator (1512-1594 years), armchair scientist, who brought together all the accumulated geographical knowledge in Europe of that time.

Of course, we are interested in icing. It is in a small subarctic zone. other area carefully traced rivers, valleys, mountain ranges …

But this card is not the last in our supply chain …

Map of Philip Buashe

Map published in 1737 — almost a century before the Antarctic expedition Bellingshausen and Lazarev. Simply amazing that map is created before the initial freezing mainland! Her East and West Antarctica are divided strait passing through the Transantarctic Mountains, which can be detected only in the absence of ice!

So, map source Buashe is even older than the Piri Reis map and Mercator!

Hypotheses where we have these artifacts?

The Americans made a great contribution to the study of ancient maps. Historian, geographer, Professor Charles Hepgut compared the coastline of Antarctica on all available ancient artifacts. In his book, Maps of sea kings, "he wrote:" This is the first convincing evidence that a remarkably intelligent people preceded all peoples known to history … Ancient travelers scoured the sea from pole to pole. As though it was amazing, there is compelling evidence that the ancient people used to explore the shores of Antarctica, when they were free of ice. Undoubtedly also, that they had such navigation tools that are superior to all those that were available to people in the ancient world, in the Middle Ages and up to the second half of the XVIII century. "

American scientists after World War II made a map of the center of projection in Cairo (where the U.S. military base), compared it with the ancient Piri Reis map and found almost complete similarity. It is therefore logical to assume that the center of the projection source Piri Reis map was near Cairo. It turns out that ancient cartographers were Egyptians or their ancestors?

But as the ancient Egyptians to know the basics of spherical trigonometry, and almost without error to determine the exact length of the equator? (Erastofen, measured in ancient times the circumference of the Earth, did it with a large error, unacceptable to create such accurate maps!)

Hepgut argues that the projection center of the ancient Piri Reis map passes through Alexandria, where the famous library could continue its source. About who is, in fact, it was, there is another guess.

Referring to some research suggests that ancient cartographers — Garamantes kings, who ruled at the time in Egypt. Plato calls them even kings of Atlantis! Recall what unfathomable knowledge, according to legend, had Atlanta. And it is possible that this knowledge and they used to create maps.

Imagine this mighty civilization, psychic, control aircraft and is capable of creating an artificial satellite of the Earth! So they who could very carefully study our planet from space, and then process the information so far inaccessible to humanity means. It is unclear if only for what they paid supermen? Whatever it was, I want to believe that they have left us a legacy of the ancient, and therefore, humanity still has a chance to reach their heights in the field of science and progress. The main thing — not to repeat their mistakes …
