Islands pictured are, from left, Guernsey, Herm, Sark and Jersey.
overhead photograph of the Channel Islands picks out clearly
the beautiful coastline shapes created by the erosion of the
land by the sea over time.
the Ptolemy map below we see the crude attempts to survey
the Mediterranean coastlines, yet on the much earlier Portalano
(port to port), the Piri Re'is, and the Oronteus Finaeus maps
we find exceptional detail.
at the many practical problems of making accurate
coastline surveys, this would suggest that these earlier maps
could only have been created from airial surveys and high
the Oronteus Finaeus map of the Antarctic, where both coastline
detail and the overlying ice cover are accurately recorded,
this would explain how the maps were created in relatively modern
isolation, Professor Hapgood's thesis within Maps of The
Ancient Sea Kings is a difficult one to accept.
when taken with Professor Stechini's observations of ancient
land surveys, and the raft of supporting evidence of an advanced
world wide civilisation, his case is made.
