For some 24 years in the 1500s map makers included Australia on their world maps - long before Australia was actually 'discovered' by Europeans, according to conventional history. This book presents evidence that the ancient Greeks landed in the Americas and circumnavigated the world more than 1300 years before the voyage of Magellan. This great expedition was recorded by the Greeks and the resultant maps and scrolls are stored in the Great Library of Alexandria. There they remained until 340--345AD when Roman troops removed selected items and took them back to Italy. History sadly records that in 390AD the then Bishop of Alexandria ordered the library's entire contents, some 700,000 scrolls, maps, and other artifacts, burnt or smashed. This research traces what really happened in those turbulent times and explains how some of these records were not destroyed but remained intact for map makers to rediscover more than one thousand years later. Importantly, it explores how the magnificent works of ancient master map maker Claudius Ptolemy were found and redrawn in the 1300s. Strangely, though the original ancient maps were found, it is clear that those who drew new maps from them did not fully understand the extent of what the ancient Greek voyagers had achieved.
