How cool is this ? An old map from 1502 shows the Portuguese interpretation of their discoveries up to then.

Can you imagine a time where you still didn't know exactly what land masses were out there ? We take it for granted now but there was so much uncertainty back then. There still is, of course but you know what I mean.

Anyway, map....

Obviously the Portuguese weren't the only voyagers. Who knows what the Vikings had truly discovered way before them. Does anyone else know of any other unfinished maps ?
