Suspicious transformations of various geographical areas as observed on historical maps

Multiple Temperate Antarcticas

  • 644
  • 17
My hypothesis is that the continent we know of as "Antarctica" is actually multiple continents, many of them temperate. The "Antarctica" shown on maps is the result of amalgamating these landmasses into one large continent. During the age of exploration, many land forms were discovered south of...

Cone Earth Concept

A slight modification to the flat earth map answers quite a few criticisms and inconsistencies in that cosmology, perhaps bringing us one step closer to the truth. For instance, why the polar night above a certain latitude? Quite simply, that's when the sun dips below the level of the polar...

Santorini group: was created 350 years ago in 1666, not 3600 years ago in 1600 BCE

The island of Santorini in its current shape was formed around 1666 AD, which is way different from the official 1642–1540 BC. This is, for a second, a 3200 year difference. There was never an above water eruption of some volcano mountain they call Thera. The first thing we could do is lay to...

Continent of North America does not exist... or could it be a part of Asia?

  • 891
  • 17
I have not seen anything to confirm the below. At the same time, I have seen actual places, but I did not see the entire planet from above. Nothing in my experience, or educational background supports this hypothesis. We have GPSs guiding our travels. We have Google Earth capable of showing us...

1770 book: Atlantis subdivided into three more, America, Sebastia, and Hyperborea

This is just an FYI, in case you feel like doing some interesting reading. At the same time I have never heard an Atlantis theory like this. Wondering if the text, or the continent split story slipped through the cracks of the censoring process. The text is written in hypotheticals, as if the...

Continent of Australia does not exist... as we know it

  • 3,056
  • 21
This is officially the most coo coo jumbo-crazy thing I have written to date. If anything, it is going to be an entertaining piece of reading for you. I am planning to question the geographical accuracy of the layout of the continent of Australia. I do understand how bananas it sounds, for I...

16th century Tartarian King Tartarrax ruled Quivira Regnum in North America

Came up on some fun info pertaining to the North American continent, and its possible relation to Tartary. Here is what we have. Francisco Vázquez de Coronado was a Spanish conquistador and explorer who led a large expedition from Mexico to present-day Kansas through parts of the southwestern...

Mount Meru. Is there a magnetic mountain at the North pole?

  • 1,638
  • 20
The north pole as we know it today is a barren place, wind swept ice fields and the occasional polar bear. The concept of "North" has been an integral part of man's expansion and journeys through out history. Navigation is made much more possible when one can reference a fixed point. With the...

17-18th century transformation of the Japanese Archipelago

  • 1,457
  • 16
Whatever happened, shredded Japan to pieces. Whatever wealth and gold was witnessed by Marco Polo perished in the cataclysm, which changed the Island of Japan forever. Whatever emperors used to rule Japan, were ruling it no more. And those Emperors looked nothing like the Japanese of today...

Aerial view map of Villa Adriana by Battista Piranesi

Below you will find two images. One of them is the etching done by Battista Piranesi (1720 - 1778) some time in the 18th century. The other one is a screenshot of the same area I did 5 minutes ago using Google Earth. If we have a guru, who could do an overlay, please help us out. From what I see...

The forgotten people of Tahuglauk and Mozeemlek: 17th century North America

  • 2,633
  • 16
A few days ago I was looking at some older (17th-18th century) maps when two words attracted my attention. Those words were "Tahuglauk" and "Mozeemlek". Googling the words revealed that Google knows what Wikipedia does not. Surprisingly there was very little contemporary information...​

Bizarre transformation of the North American Continent: 16th through 19th centuries

  • 3,385

There are many similar definitions of what a map is. This is just one of those, "A description of the earth, or some particular part thereof, projected upon a plain superficies; describing the form of countries, rivers, situation of cities, hills, woods, and other remarks." Single maps...

Tartary - an Empire hidden in history. It was bigger than Russia once...

"Tartary, a vast country in the northern parts of Asia, bounded by Siberia on the north and west: this is called Great Tartary. The Tartars who lie south of Muscovy and Siberia, are those of Astracan, Circassia, and Dagistan, situated north-west of the Caspian-sea; the Calmuc Tartars, who lie...

Could our planet Earth be one huge quarry?

"If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck" - we all heard of this so-called "duck test". It suggests that a person can identify an unknown subject by observing that subject's habitual characteristics. For open minded people, the below...

400 year old Sahara Desert, or why people forgot everything they knew about Africa

"All right, Beatrice, there was no alien. The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus." - Kay, MIB. I always thought that Sahara Desert was thousands of years old. Of course, the...

A 60 sheet world map was made in 1587 by Urbano Monte. It ended up being approximately nine feet by nine feet when fully assembled. The map was obtained by the David Rumsey Map Center at Stanford Libraries. The Map Center scanned all 60 sheets, and digitally put them together. When assembled...
