OF THE ANCIENT SEA KINGS
and ancient maps reveal a new history of mankind in Charles
Hapgoods classic - back in print after more than twenty
this fascinating and provocative book Charles Hapgood uses ancient
maps as evidence for the existence, many thousands of years
ago, of an advanced worldwide civilisation. The maps, long known
to scholars, include the Piri Reis Map that shows Antarctica,
the Hadji Ahmed map, the Oronteus Finaeus and other remarkable
maps and charts. According to Hapgood, the mapmakers responsible
for the earliest maps must in some ways have been more technically
advanced than sixteenth-century Europe and the ancient civilisations
of Greece, Egypt and Babylonia.Not only did they produce fantastically
detailed maps, they also appear to have mapped every continent.
The Americas were mapped thousands of years before Columbus
and Antarctica was mapped when its coasts were free of ice.
From the evidence it seems that these people must have lived
when the ice age had not yet ended in the Northern Hemisphere
and when Alaska was still connected to Siberia by the Pleistocene,
ice age land bridge, that is, thousands of years
before the heyday of the ancient Egyptians.
