Does anyone have links or anything to some old maps? I'm looking for anything after A.D. 1 to to A.D. 1500.

It depends if you want "old maps" for the look of them, or modern maps of an what an area looked like in that time period, or old maps for historical significance. :D

Here's some nice old maps, I'm not sure of the time period though: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/ad/Ptolemy_World_Map.jpg

Here's a whole site with modern maps of areas in that time period: http://pazhayathu.blogspot.com/2011/10/maps-of-kerala-in-world-map-from-600-bc.html

Let me know if those help. :)

Joe, I have one map I found somewhere on the internet that is really cool; it's a map of America made in the 1700s:

Be careful of your thoughts; guard your mind, for your thoughts become words. Be guarded when you speak, for your words turn into action. Watch what you do, for your actions will become habits. Be wary of your habits, for they become your character. Pray over your character; strive to mold it to the image of Christ, because your character will shape your destiny.

Ideas can germinate from the smallest seeds. Collect those seeds, and let them grow in the back of your mind. You may be surprised by what finally blooms.

When God takes something from your grasp, he's not punishing you. Instead, He’s opening your hands to receive something better. The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.

Wow! That is epic! I had to stare at it for a while before realizing that it is North America before all of it was discovered!

I have an entire book full of maps from the Atlas Maior 1665! They're beautiful! Sadly I can't scan any for you, but if you google Atlas Maior you'll find some good ones :)

*stares at North America map in awe* Wow. I feel like I just had a trip on a time machine.
For not having satellites or anything, they got it pretty close!
And look at those perfect letters! Those were done by hand!
Wow.

Where I live isn't even there! :shock:
I'm in the Unexplored Area there, and I suspect Azlyn is too.
