Not only does Gavin Menzies discuss the Piri Reis map in his 1421 map, but he also adds some new information on it in his new book 1434. For those
that have 1434, the information is on pages 130 and 131. For those who have not read 1421 and 1434, I highly recommend them. There is, as always,
controversy about any book that suggests new ideas, but I can tell you, since I know Gavin, that research on his books have been extensive. Anytime
someone proposes something that goes against the "prevailing thought", they are subject to criticism and vilification. His arguments are compelling.
I don't wish to get into arguments over Gavin in this thread. I've already battled other academics in the past on this. I suggest that you pick them
up, read them, and decide for yourselves. Both books are excellent reads. (And no, I don't get any royalties for suggesting this!)
