They’re founded approximately over the Pillars of Hercules, the gateway to the Atlantic Ocean. And the direction line maintains on from there. ” i used to be a bit wondered. “But i presumed that the Egyptians by no means ventured that some distance? ” “They didn’t, so far as an individual understands, yet there are a few different probabilities. For one, we may no longer learn about a few voyages of exploration made via person Egyptian, possibly now not sanctioned by means of their ruler on the time. take into accout, so much of our wisdom of historical Egypt comes from the writings at the partitions of temples. There’s no means lets potentially understand each major occasion that happened over the thirty-five hundred years of historical Egyptian background. “And there’s one other possibility…” He hesitated. “And that may be…” “The Phoenicians did sail past the Pillars of Hercules beautiful usually. They traded with Britain, eire, Spain, and Western Africa. in truth, they mapped quite a lot of Africa and will have sailed so far as the Cape of fine desire, all earlier than the time of Christ. “There’s one other strange aspect. Maps. within the 1400’s, there has been a Turkish admiral known as Piri Reis who kept a map in what used to be then Constantinople. It used to be stumbled on it slow later, however it confirmed the Americas and Antarctica. This map was once made a while sooner than Columbus sailed the sea blue, and its linked documentation acknowledged that it used to be drawn from much more old resources. ” “So? ” I acknowledged. “Maybe anyone obtained details out of your Phoenicians, or the Vikings, or an individual who used to be within the Americas earlier than Columbus. ” “That will be an outstanding element, yet this map confirmed the west coast of South the USA and info of Antarctica lower than the ice sheets. South the United States wasn’t mapped until eventually at the very least 100 years later, and Antarctica has been coated via a mile of ice for seven thousand years. The resource for the Piri Reis map was once anything else. nobody quite understands the place that details got here from. It’s no longer outdoors the limits of hazard that the folks who made the map at the amulet had entry to that info, possibly the very historic texts from which the Piri Reis maps have been derived. ” I stated, “So we now have a probably actual map at the again of the amulet, that leads out into the Atlantic. It starts off in Alexandria, yet the place does it visit? ” “Mexico. extra accurately, the Yucatan peninsula. right here. ” He pointed at a place at the map. “Remember, the Egyptians have been wizards at computing the celebrities, so the accuracy here's most likely beautiful reliable. ” “Mexico? ” I acknowledged. “But so far as i do know, there aren’t any strains of the Egyptians in Mexico. a minimum of not anyone informed us approximately any in class. ” Zack chuckled. “You will locate as you become old that a lot of what you're taught at school is both superficial or outright fallacious. to offer them a few advantage of the doubt, the colleges try and educate the permitted model of heritage, however the field’s so huge, there’s loads fabric to hide, and on condition that there’s no position for the newest theories or discoveries, the consequent textual content books are only no longer very valuable.
