Ptolemey’s Map

A week or two ago, there was some question about the map that appeared in our textbook in Chapter 16. The map was drawn in 1482 and had some weird Latin writing with faces blowing.

I found some interesting information about the map and I am posting it here. Check it out, it’s pretty interesting.

Click on the link or cut and paste it in to your browser. You’ll get a .pdf of teacher notes that I think you’ll be able to understand.
