[The first world map !]


The first world map that shows Europe, Asia, Africa and North and South America which was not discovered then, has been drawn by Piri Reis, the famous Turkish sailor in Gelibolu in 1513. Erich van Daniken, in his book “The Cars of Gods” claims that the guests from other planets took Piri Reis to their space ships and showed him the world from air so that the famous “Piri Reis map” which is as correct and accurate as the photographs from satellites was drawn.
