Hi Greg,

I would recommend Graham Handcock's Fingerprints Of The Gods,
which begins with a chapter on the Piri Reis map. It is indeed
one of the more interesting mysteries that have yet to be
explained, and Handcock does a good job of making them
interesting and readable.

What appears to emerge from the 'map' is the fact that a far
more advanced civilization existed 12,000 years ago than is now
commonly accepted, but without any other artifacts the map
appears to be an object out of time.

The fact that the Antarctica coastline beneath the ice was only
re-discovered with the use of satellite imaging makes it all the
more interesting, since the last time it was visible there was
no known 'civilization' advanced to the level of map making.

As with numerous other intriguing historical facets, the
provenance of the Piri Reis map dead ends at the Library of
Alexandria - if memory serves. I believe there are many who
would agree that mankind's technology was probably set back many
Centuries with the burning of that information, and we are only
beginning to get a glimpse of the science and technology that
has only recently been rediscovered.

As we are learning from the multiplicity of cable documentaries
that Christianity has had a far more complex and selectively
defined than we were led to believe in Sunday School, I believe
that our 'sciences' have also selectively rejected data that is
too far outside the norm.

But in the end we seem to have a more modern and better thought
out sequel to the highlighting of historical anomalies started
by Von D=E4niken's Chariots of the Gods. Tragically, there isn't
a lot of interest in mainstream science to go back and re-think
things until they're forced to.
