If Antarctica before the so-called pole shifting was much further north than today and if it was not covered with ice until 6000 BC, as history teaches us, then who lived at that time that could record it on a map, before all known civilizations . Besides, who could have done it before the invention of the marine chronometer in the 18th century, which solved the problem of accurate tracking of longitudes in high seas?
If conventional knowledge of the history of the human race is accurate, then our civilization is neither old enough nor advanced enough to be attributed to a number of mysterious monolithic and archaeological sites around the world.
A map that challenges history
It is precisely the map that admiral Piria Reis from 1513 that is part of a clip of a very complex story of human history, which bravely challenges a widespread and accepted understanding of that same history.
Antarctica was first officially spotted in 1820 during a Russian expedition. It was then observed to be completely covered by an ice sheet, believed to have formed about 35 to 45 million years ago. For this reason, Antarctica could not have appeared on the map before 1820, and all maps on which it is located should have indicated ice poles that are several million years old.
But Piri Reis map certainly raises doubts about what we really know about ancient civilizations. It is a map of the world that included military intelligence, compiled by the Ottoman Admiral Reis. About a third of the map has been preserved - showing the west coasts of Europe, North Africa and the coast of Brazil with incredible accuracy. Various islands of the Atlantic, such as the Azure and the Canary Islands are also shown, as well as the mythical island of Antilia and probably Japan. The historical importance of the map lies in the demonstration of global exploration of the New World up to 1510, and it was reportedly used by Christopher Columbus. In addition, the map contains details of the coast that many historians and geologists claim is the Land of Queen Maud, or Antarctica.

But how can a map made in 1513 have a continent discovered only in the 19th century? And, if Antarctica was discovered by civilizations that appeared in 4000 BC, why is there no ice surface on the map? They were more advanced than we think. The map is no fraud, as its authenticity has been repeatedly confirmed, and the author Reis himself points out that it was drawn from information from older maps, graphics and records, many of which were copied and rewritten before the destruction of the Library of Alexandria in Egypt. Thus the map opens up the possibility of the theory that some forgotten ancient civilization had the capacity, ability, knowledge and technological capabilities to travel to Antarctica - all before the formation of ice, which is the complete opposite of what history teaches us. According to the theory of American professor Charles Hapgood, which agrees with the beliefs of Albert Einstein, then there was a period from about 13,000 BC to 6,000 BC when Antarctica was closer to the equator and there was a tropical climate, as in parts of South America.
This would be caused by a sudden change in the entire lithosphere of the Earth, so all the continents moved to their current locations, which is a significantly different attitude than the widely accepted explanation of tectonic plate theory. But who lived at a time when he could record everything on a map, before the existence of all known civilizations, and even before the invention of the marine chronometer in the 18th century to accurately track longitudes? Conspiracy theorists believe that such a civilization existed, was far more advanced than ours, and was long forgotten.
Ancient city and civilization Layers of ice hide many secrets, and allegedly the ruins of an ancient city were discovered below it in Antarctica. In 2002, an entire California television crew disappeared on that relentless continent. Although the bodies were not found, a strange trail remained behind them - footage and a story of ancient ruins. The mission was then carried out by the US Marines. Johnathan Gray, an archaeologist from World Education Research Ltd. he said the navy was deliberately not publishing the footage found.
The site is about 160 kilometers west of Vostok station, naval sources claim that it is not an ancient city, but an abandoned supply hole. Recently, NASA's Operation IceBridge in Antarctica revealed what some experts believe is evidence of the existence of an ancient city located about 2.3 kilometers below the ice. The structure is pyramidal in shape.
