Suspicious transformations of various geographical areas as observed on historical maps

1740: Batavia aka Jakarta, Indonesia

  • 570
  • 7
The founding of Batavia by the Dutch in 1619, on the site of the ruins of Jayakarta, led to the establishment of a Dutch colony; Batavia became the center of the Dutch East India Company's trading network in Asia. Monopolies on local produce were augmented by non-indigenous cash crops. To...

What is hiding in Greenland?

  • 6,164
  • 50
Greenland, and more specifically its purchase by the US, is being actively discussed in the Oval Office. But what exactly is it that makes one of the world’s most desolate places such an attractive proposition? Greenland harbours some of the largest deposits of rare-earth metals, including...

19th century: Underground City in Turkmenistan and the fake Caspian Sea History

  • 3,082
  • 19
Some interesting things we can find in the older books. Has anyone ever heard of this huge underground city located in Turkestan (I assume it's today's Turkmenistan) sometime at the end of the 19th century? As far as I understand this town of Karki should have have been spelled Kerki. This is...

Mud from the sky, and water from nowhere

  • 2,647
  • 20
Now, the Blood Rain, Mud Rain and the Dust of the Regular Winds are not seemingly related to the regular floods. At the same time, there could be a lot more in common than meets the eye. I ran onto this interesting publication dated with 1850. The mere fact that people were concerned with such...

Area 51 a.k.a. Totonteac: the Seventh City of Cibola?

  • 4,545
  • 11
The United States Air Force facility commonly known as Area 51 is a highly classified remote detachment of Edwards Air Force Base, within the Nevada Test and Training Range. According to the CIA, the correct names for the facility are Homey Airport and Groom Lake, though the name Area 51 was...

Manoa El Dorado, Lake Parime, the Lost City of Gold and the Headless People

  • 2,865
  • 12
Lake Parime is a legendary lake located in South America. It was reputedly the location of the fabled city of El Dorado, also known as Manoa, much sought-after by European explorers. Repeated attempts to find the lake failed to confirm its existence, and it was dismissed as a myth along with the...

The Cataclysm Event That Changed Africa Forever

  • 2,535
  • 9
I propose the Pigafetta family has the key to understanding the cataclysm that disconnected Europe from the Americas and Africa until they were slowly rediscovered. Antonio Pigafetta, a man who survived the circumnavigation of the earth with Magellan, extensively detailed his trip and made many...

Did Monomotapa-city become South African Pretoria-city?

  • 1,342
  • 1
Pretoria was founded in 1855 by Marthinus Pretorius, a leader of the Voortrekkers, who named it after his father Andries Pretorius and chose a spot on the banks of the "Monkeys river" to be the new capital of the South African Republic. The elder Pretorius had become a national hero of the...

Australia: Nullarbor Plain

  • 3,945
  • 24
The Nullarbor Plain is part of the area of flat, almost treeless, arid or semi-arid country of southern Australia, located on the Great Australian Bight coast with the Great Victoria Desert to its north. It is the world's largest single exposure of limestone bedrock, and occupies an area of...

1530s Iceland: Reykjahlíð vs. Saxa and Scalholdin. Vanished cities?

  • 5,608
  • 27
I think Scalholdin, and Saxa, were annihilated by some force which was not supposed to exist around 1539. Yet, we might have enough evidence that such force did exist. If it was a natural force similar to asteroids, there would be no reason to hide it from us. Yet, the reality appears to be...

National Geographic: "Debunking" of Flat Earth, I couldn't help but notice something...

  • 11,713
  • 74
I want to state that I don't personally believe in the Flat Earth hypothesis. That said, I thought this video was shameful and quite transparent in it's smear campaign to shut the Flat Earthers up. They didn't once actually exhibit one of their arguments. Then, their big proof of the curvature...

Friesland: The land that time forgot

  • 8,474
  • 39
Haven't looked into it much, but I think this island deservers it's own thread. It disappears from the maps only at the end of the 18th century it seems, and stayed there longer than other supposedely mythical places like Hyperborea. Frisland is a phantom island that appeared on virtually all of...

Terra Ammiracionis - Land Beyond the Sea

  • 2,411
  • 15
In the land beyond the sea, that is called Terra Ammiracionis, there ruled Count Sattan of Aligemorum. Under his rule was born a knightly man who was called Abraham of Temonaria. He was born 810 years after Noah's Flood. He took a wife from the realm Samamorum, who was a daughter of Lord...

Annihilated African cities, killed population, establishment lies and the Richat Structure Atlantis

  • 18,648
  • 51
This thread is a sort of buildup on the already existing thread: 400 year old Sahara Desert, or why people forgot everything they knew about Africa. Influenced by the recent publicity related to the ancient lost city of Atlantis being located in Africa, I took a hard look at quite a few of the...

Tartarian City of Norumbega was conquered to become Washington, DC

  • 14,046
  • 30
Had a chance to sleep on this entire topic. I think the area named Nurumbega could be a part of the Tartarian Union with the city visited by David Ingram being the City of Bega, or the City of Nurumbega. Was the city actually named Nurumbega? I do not know, could be either way. The City of Bega...

Legendary city of Norumbega: could it be Washington, DC?

  • 9,196
  • 36
I'm gonna attempt to tackle this Norumbega, a.k.a city of Bega, Nurumberg, Nurumbega, Nurembega, Norobega, Oranbega legend. There are quite a few fascinating occurrences related to this so-called "legendary settlement" located in the northeastern part of North America. Reading the official...

Jerusalem on the Catalan Atlas by Cresques vs Santo Sepulcro by Anonymous

  • 1,287
  • 6
Just wanted to point out an interesting difference on virtually similar 14th century maps. It is easy to dismiss little things like that, but remember that "devil is in the details." The maps I'm talking about are famous Catalan portolan type depictions of the Earth. The primary purpose of these...

18th century Cartography and Map Making

  • 1,539
  • 8
Have been looking at a lot of different maps recently, and came across a few puzzling ones. Their appearance simply does not match my traditional understanding of the eighteenth century means and abilities. At the same time, my knowledge of the semi-ancient surveying techniques is next to zero...

Troy: X marked the spot for centuries, but the ruins were only identified in 1822

  • 7,576
  • 11
The official history tells us that the city of Troy was founded in 3000 BC. This same very history teaches us that the city was abandoned in 500 BC. The Trojan War was a historical event of the 13th or 12th century BC, but by the mid-19th century AD, both the war and the city were widely seen as...

Mohenjo-daro was destroyed 450-500 years ago

  • 5,692
  • 29
It appears our archaeologists are hiding our true history on purpose. Unfortunately, there is plenty of evidence to suggest such a notion. This time we are going to look at the allegedly 4,500 year old city of Mohenjo-daro. Of course, this is not its real name. Scientists say that they do not...
