Charles H. Hapgood has found the evidence in many beautiful maps long known to scholars, the Piri Reis Map that shows Antarctica, the Hadji Ahmed map, the Oronteus Finaeus and other amazing maps. Hapgood concluded that these maps were made from more ancient maps from the various ancient archives around the world, now lost. Hapgood also concluded that the ancient mapmakers were in some ways much more advanced scientifically than Europe in the 16th century, or than the ancient civilizations of Greece, Egypt, and Babylonian. Not only were these unknown people more advanced in mapmaking than any people prior to the 18th century, it appears they mapped all the continents. The Americas were mapped thousands of years before Columbus. Antarctica was mapped when its coasts were free of ice. There is evidence that these people must have lived when the ice age had not yet ended in the Northern Hemisphere and when Alaska was still connected with Siberia by the Pleistocene, ice age “land bridge.”
Charles H. Hapgood (1904-1982), a former professor at Keene State College in Keene, New Hampshire, was a lifelong student of the history of science. In a previous book, Earth’s Shifting Crust, Hapgood offered answers to long-standing enigmas of geology. In a foreword to that book, Albert Einstein
said Hapgood’s idea could be “of great importance to everything that is related to the history of the earth's surface.” In Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings, Hapgood offered theories of importance to the history of mankind itself.
