Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings
By Charles H. Hapgood

Evidence of Advanced Civilization in the Ice Age

Some scholars have claimed that an advanced world civilization existed before Egypt of the pharaohs and before ancient Sumeria. Evidence to back up such claims is pretty thin on the ground. But now concrete evidence has come through the careful study of old maps, especially maps that for the most part have been known for centuries.

Working with his students for seven years, Professor Hapgood succeeded in decoding the more accurate maps of the Renaissance and Medieval times. The most accurate were the oldest, often the Medieval maps, and it soon became clear that they had been compiled from much older source maps, the information from which had been passed down, their origins forgotten.

These ancient sources apparently knew the Antarctic coast free of ice and remembered remnant ice sheets in Northern Europe. They could determine longitude accurately, and were able to use spherical trigonometry long before the Greeks, who presumably "reinvented" it.

Most interesting is the likelihood that this extra ordinary knowledge of the earth could only have been possessed and used by a world-wide culture.
