The Piri Reis map, compiled in 1513, rediscovered in 1929. It focuses on the western coast of Africa, the eastern coast of South America and the northern coast of Antarctica, known as Queen Maud Land. Antarctica remained undiscovered until 1818, more than 300 years before the Piri Reis map was drawn. The map shows an exact match to the ice-free northern coast of Antarctica, though the last time the conditions of the coast were ice-free was in 4000 BCE. There is no ancient civilization known to history that could have been capable of surveying and documenting Queen Maud Land in the conditions shown on the map: between 13,000 BCE and 4000 BCE.
