In 1929, a group of historians found an map drawn on a Gazelle hide.

The Piri Reis map shows the western coast of Africa, the eastern coast of South America, and the northern coast of Antarctica. The northern coastline of Antarctica is perfectly detailed.

The most puzzling aspect however, is not so much how Piri Reis managed to draw such an accurate map of the Antarctic region 300 years before it was even discovered, but that the map shows the coastline under the ice.

Geological evidence confirms that the latest date Queen Maud Land could have been charted in an ice-free state is 4000 BC.

The ‘official’ science has traditionally stated that the ice-cap which covers the Antarctic is a million years old.

The Piri Reis map shows that the northern part of that continent has been mapped before the ice did cover it. That should make one think it has been mapped a million years ago, but that’s impossible, since mankind did not exist at that time, did it?

Further and more accurate studies have since stated that the last period of ice-free condition in the Antarctic ended about 6000 years ago.

There are still doubts about the beginning of this ice-free period, which has been put forward by different researchers as being between year 13000 and 9000 BC.

The question is: Who mapped the Queen Maud Land of the Antarctic, some 6000 years ago?

Which civilization had the technology or the need to do that?

The Mesopotamian civilization of Sumer is ‘officially’ believed to have begun around 4000-3500 BC.

And even this is disputed..

So, accordingly, none of the ‘known’ civilizations of the time could have performed such a task.

So who really was there around 4000 years BC, with the ability to do things that even now are only possible with the help of modern technology?

  1. It has always been one of my favourite map mysteries. I remember reading once that both it and a medieval Turkish map could both be based on an unknown but much older map.

  2. It is well-known that the first civilization, according to the traditional history, developed in the mid-east around year 3000 BC, soon to be followed within a millennium by the Indus valley and the Chinese ones.
    Göbekli Tepe is turkey 12,000 years old so that kind of kills the 3,000 year old theory dead.

    1. I did some double checking, as this does seems to be a much disputed subject, and based on ‘established’ and ‘traditional’ evidence, the Mesopotamian civilization of Sumer is believed to have begun around 4000-3500 BC.

      Though it is entirely possible that it could have been even earlier than that..

      I simply stated that there were no civilizations ‘capable’ of mapping the area to that degree, at the time.

      ‘The true history of this planet is still to be told…..’

  3. Wow did not expect to find the piri reis map here, always a highly debated subject and always a matter of great interest for myself.
    Really good book that starts with a look into this and other such maps is Fingerprints of the Gods by Graham Hancock which is a fantastic read. As for it’s origin who knows.
    There is lots of pyramids and other structures that could only have been built with heavy machinery, Giza, Puma Punku and most of mexico.
    Fascinating subject indeed, by the way check out the pyramids that have just been found in Bosnia.

    1. Expect the unexpected here my friend, my interests are wide and diverse….

      And quite controversial judging by some of the comments 🙂

      1. They are indeed my friend, individual threats are bad enough without involving family, keep your chin up and stay curious.
        Only believe half of what you see and even less that you hear.

        Think these things are called ooparts, like the Bagdad battery, the 600,000 year old plug.
        I use a website called message to eagle and it seems quite good.

  4. A really good youtube vid is the pyramid code by Carl Munck, a good study of “sacred geometry”.
    Some of the numbers in the great pyramid are just mind boggling, I want to know more about the heads on easter island as they have just discovered that they are submerged so much bigger than previously thought, the math hidden in stone henge.
    Tis a fascinating world we live in, it’s just the times we live now i do not like.

  5. The perfect antarctic coastline is attatched to south america- so not that perfect then!

  6. I’ve been following ancient civilisation theories for most of my life, since my dad bought me a book that contained the Piri map when I was 14. I’ve visited Egypt & Peru with Hancock’s Fingerprints as a guide. I am 100% convinced that the Incas are not responsible for the amazing stonework littered around Peru – but that’s an article on its own. Of primary interest to me are the megalithic builders, who left their fingerprints in Lebanon (Baalbek), Malta, Egypt (Osyrian) and Bolivia (Puma Punka). Huge blocks weighing hundreds of tons, which we’d have difficulty shifting today. I stood on the roof of the Puma Punka and was absolutely blown away. The Inca stonework is incredible, the Punka is out of this world. I don’t doubt that the site dates to 10,000 BC+ – you have to go back at least that far to justify the docks at Tiahunaco, which were once on the shores of lake Titicaca. Interesting stuff, but that’s only the most recent of the ancient civilisations.

    In my opinion, the true history of humanity is buried under the Antarctic ice sheet. That’s where we started, not Africa. Our most recent/ancient cities are all under the ocean, 200ft down, thanks to rising sea levels at the end of the last ice age. Hancock has discovered several off the coast of India, which date to 7,000BC+

    I would not be surprised to discover that TPTB know a lot about where we came from and are deliberately keeping it under wraps.

  7. I am also an “Outlaw”

    Can you tell me who to contact to attain permission to use the Piri Re’is Map in my work?

    Thanks so very much,
    David Jones Ph.D.

    1. I really would not know David, the image I used is freely available in the public domain. My only advice would be for you to try and contact it’s current custodians.
