Here is an image of the stone map with named places and rivers for scale.
I wish to present to you what I believe could be the most important prehistoric artefact EVER found,that could illuminate the intelligence,capabilities and life style of our ancient ancestors that left Africa around a million years ago.
This artefact appears to be carved,incised and painted on a split stone pebble just 4 1/2 inches high and shows the coastlines and river systems of Northern Europe,the Atlantic coastlines of France,Portugal and Spain right down to Gibraltar and beyond into Africa.

whats that land mass in the middle of the mediterranean sea?
Submerged sites of ancient communities could be hidden in the seas around the Western Isles, according to experts. Dr Jonathan Benjamin and Dr Andrew Bicket believe the islands' long and sheltered lochs have protected 9,000-year-old Mesolithic relics. Rising sea levels may have covered up to 6.2 miles (10km) of land on the west coast of the Outer Hebrides. The archaeologists are to give a presentation in Comhairle nan Eilean Siar's council chambers on Monday.
During the Mesolithic period, also known as the Middle Stone Age, Britain was transformed from a peninsula to an island. It is thought that landslides in Norway - the Storegga Slides - triggered one of the biggest tsunamis ever recorded on Earth when a landlocked sea burst its banks. The water struck the north-east of Britain with such force it travelled 25 miles (40km) inland, turning low-lying plains into what is now the North Sea, and marshlands to the south into the Channel.

I found a potato once that looked a little bit like a badger sitting on a wall.....turns out it was just a potato after all though.
