... Charles H. Hapgood, Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings/TITLE From: Aeon III:2 (May 1993) Home | Issue Contents BOOK REVIEWS: Charles H. Hapgood, Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings (Chilton Books, New York), 1966. A Review by Ian C. Johnson Charles H. Hapgood, a professor of the history of science at Keene State College in New Hampshire, acknowledged that his book was inspired by Captain Arlington H. Mallery, who was the first to suggest that the Piri Re'is map of 1513 showed a part of Antarctica. Mallery also made the original suggestion that the first map of the Antarctic coast "must have ...
12. Orbits And Their Measurements [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. II No. 3 (Feb 1977) Home | Issue Contents Orbits And Their Measurements Raymond C. Vaughan ABSTRACT A diagram or "map " is developed on which elliptical orbits are represented as points, and on which the interrelated values of various orbital parameters are shown, accurate to within l or 2 per cent Thus, at a given point, the various parameter values for the orbit are shown. Conversely, a point can be defined on the map by two given parameter values. The map shows graphically the interdependence of parameters and thereby illustrates the limitations on orbital change. First, a brief description is given of orbital parameters, Kepler's laws ...
13. Imaginary Worlds [Journals] [Aeon]
... travesty" of his words, and being "simple-minded in the extreme." As if this was not enough, he claims that I am guilty of having "not taken the time to study anything," "circularity of rationalisations," and of being "simply incapable of admitting that any cartographer could ever draw any feature on a map not based on accurate geographic knowledge." According to Mewhinney, "Beal has absolutely no idea what he is talking about, and doesn't care." "He [Beal] knows nothing about the history of navigation and exploration and has no interest in learning." "Beal...has done nothing whatsoever but regurgitate what ...

... sent a paltry few, but successful, lanteen-sailed fleets to explore the west coast of Africa and eventually sail around the Cape of Good Hope into the Indian Ocean, little was known of any sea lanes other than those in the Mediterranean and along the western Atlantic shores of Europe. Henry the Navigator procured his clues secretively from the 1428 World Map provided to cartographer Fra Mauro by the Venetian trader Niccolò da Conti, who arrived in 1420 at Calicut, a major trading port on the Malabar coast of India, just prior to the launching of the four square-masted "treasure" armadas of exploration and commerce by Zhu Di. Da Conti undoubtedly was also able to secure a berth on ...
15. Star Names: Their Lore and Meaning [Books]
... in its day, the Geography of the Heavens, with its Atlas by Elijah H. Burritt, published in various editions from 1833 to 1856. This described fifty well-recognized constellations visible from the latitude of Hartford, Connecticut, 410 461; although his table of those in the entire heavens included ninety-six, most of which appeared in the accompanying maps, the figures being taken from Wollaston's drawings. Although not an original work of great scientific value, and erroneous as well as deficient in its stellar nomenclature, it had a sale of over a quarter of a million copies, and much influence in the dissemination of astronomical knowledge in the generation now passing away. I am glad to ...

17. The Mapmakers from the ice age [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... ://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/jlacroix1/geoAN.html A geodesic net of planetary size has been settled during the 10th millenary before Christ. Its structure has been revealed by the special repartition of a certain number of sacred sites. For a long time, I have been puzzled by the very ancient and accurate maps studied by Charles H. Hapgood in Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings, proofs of the existence of a advanced civilization in the ice age. One of those maps includes practically the whole earth: it's a map that belonged in the XVIth century to the Turkish Admiral Re'is. Hapgood has shown that the original map has been drawn using ...
18. How Old is Greenland's Ice Cap? [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... and ice-free throughout the great Ice Age? Hapgood presents compelling evidence that the poles have wandered widely in the last 300,000 years. The second piece of evidence which challenges the validity of the ice core scientists' findings comes from quite a different quarter, although again it was Hapgood who brought it to our attention in his wonderful book Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings (Turnstone Press, London, 1979). For reasons which have not been satisfactorily explained, museums around the world have copies of medieval maps of the world which pre-date Columbus, yet accurately map areas of the world which were not discovered and surveyed by Europeans until centuries later. The most famous of these ...
19. The Origin Map [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2002:2 (Dec 2002) Home | Issue Contents The Origin Map www.iuniverse.com/bookstore/book_detail.asp?isbn= 0%2D595%2D73692%2D0 Book: The Origin Map: Discovery of a Prehistoric, Megalithic, Astrophysical Map and Sculpture of the Universe by Thomas G Brophy. (See also, Update on Nabta, p.14). On a desolate plain in the Egyptian Sahara desert, west of Aswan, there is a very remote prehistoric site called Nabta Playa. There, a recently discovered complex of extremely ancient man-made megalithic structures have baffled the archaeologists who excavated them. An insight ...
20. Towards an astronomical dating of the pyramids [Journals] [SIS Review]
... corrected by moving the pyramid of Chephren about 100 ft. closer to Cheops but this correction' on its own does not nearly clear up all the anomalies. Particularly suggestive of some miscarriage of instructions between the astronomers of Heliopolis/Letopolis and the ground surveyors at Giza is the finding (Table 2, below) that the 043.4 map bearing of Cheops from Chephren is actually the proper' heading for the line Mycerinus-Chephren, leading to a proper' heading of approx. 051 for the line Chephren-Cheops (and, incidentally, a much more satisfactory alignment with Heliopolis, as further discussed below). There is also an as yet totally unexplained phenomenon, namely that the three ...
