For many years the evidence that suggests that human conception of history is woefully incomplete. There have been numerous discoveries over the past few decades which seem to point to an ancient civilization, predating the empires of the Egyptians, the Sumerians, and the Greeks, which was capable of extraordinarily advanced feats. Perhaps the best evidence for this hypothesized ancient civilization is the astonishing geographical information that has been passed down through the generations by an unknown source.
From the medieval period onwards, cartographers tended to create maps by basing their designs on ancient maps. This practice has led to some extraordinary results which suggest that the maps these cartographers were basing their designs on were incredibly detailed and unbelievably ancient.
Extraordinary ancient maps suggest ancient civilization charted the entire planet
One example is the King Jaime World Chart which was created in 1502. This extraordinary map depicts regions of the Saharan desert complete with fertile arable land, enormous lakes and rivers and what appears to be the locations of ancient cities. In recent years, scientists and researchers have indeed suggested that there was a time in history when the Sahara Desert was inhabitable by human beings. But how could an early sixteenth-century cartographer have known this information? It appears that the only way they could have gathered this information is by examining maps created at the time when the Sahara Desert was inhabited many thousands of years ago.
Perhaps even more astonishing is the emergence of several maps including the famous Peri Reis map, the Buache map and the Oronce Fine World Map all of which depict the exact shape of the continent of Antarctica from a time when it was not covered with ice and snow. As there were no known expeditions to Antarctica until the nineteenth century, it is safe to assume that the cartographers who created these maps were working from much older maps. Once again, it is now known by scientists that there was a period in the history of the planet when Antarctica was not covered in ice and snow, many years prior to the rise of the known great ancient civilizations.
Cartography is an incredibly difficult and highly involved process which involves an extraordinary amount of knowledge about both mathematics and geography. The fact that these maps exist suggest that a group of human beings with this kind of extraordinary specialist knowledge existed tens of thousands of years ago on this planet. If this is the case, then one has to wonder why no definitive proof of such a civilization has ever come to light. Could this indicate that the rumors of a lost great civilization such as Atlantis are actually true?
