A 14.000 years old world sea map

Dr. Christine Pellech

In the NW-Spanish caves, we can find to our surprise old sea maps from the oceans all around the world. We can recognize different ships and also corresponding ocean currents.
Unexpectidly, people knew the most dangerous points of the Atlantic - the coast of Brazil and the icebergs in the north-west. But one can also find in the area of India the rivers Indus and Ganges. The river Ganges is pointed out as an early river-shipping line. This realization will be underpinned through the maps of Piri Re'is (1513) and Hadschi Ahmed (1559). Piri Re'is drew an exact map of the Atlantic and the surrounding continents and Hadschi Ahmed of the whole world.
