Maps

1513 Piri Rei map shows Atlantika in the middle of the Atlantic ocean.

1531 Orontius  Finaeus map show accurate depiction of Antarctica many centuries before it’s first recorded sighting in 1820. One must conclude that the Antarctic  continent was discovered  not by whalers and sealers of nineteenth  century .

South America appears to be drawn with more precision  before explorers began making ocean crossing  in 1492 that would be for the century that followed.
