MAPS OF THE ANCIENT SEA KINGS: Evidence of Advanced Civilization in the Ice Age Book
By Charles Hapgood
Hapgood's classic 1966 book on ancient maps is back in print. He produces concrete evidence of an advanced worldwide civilization existing many thousands of years before ancient Egypt. He has found the evidence in many beautiful maps long known to scholars, the Piri Reis Map, that shows Antarctica, the Hadji Ahmed map, the Oronteus Finaeus, and other amazing maps. Hapgood concluded that these maps were made from more ancient maps from the various ancient archives around the world, now lost.
The Americas were mapped thousands of years before Columbus. Antarctica was mapped when its coasts were free of ice. There is evidence that these people must have lived when the ice age had not yet ended in the Northern Hemisphere and when Alaska was still connected with Siberia by the Pleistocene ice age "land bridge".
