    Post Oldest map of America

    There's a really nice map article on the BBC magazine site today:

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/magazine/8328878.stm

    I'd never heard of this map until reading the article. Definitely worth a read.

    Very interesting. Especially so since I am very interested in history.

    Many thanks!

    Looks like the Vinland Map might be older, if it's authentic.

    Still, neat article.
