The evidence appears to suggest the existence in remote times, before the rise of any known cultures, of a true civilization, of an advanced kind, which either was localized in one area but had worldwide commerce, or was, in a real sense, a worldwide culture.

Dear Gentlemen:

I've just read your recently posted article about the «Piri Reis Map», and I must confess I fail to understand why there are still so many historians flabbergasted with the problem of a possible remote nautical or maritime culture. The only explanation I can find for this mishap (sort of speak) is that they are still looking at the wrong side of the globe. Why keep looking at Mesopotamia? Why?

It is a well documented enough historical fact that, already at 5.000 B.C. (!!!), there was a huge maritime commerce all along the coasts of Portugal, Galicia, French Britain, Ireland and Northern Europe! In those days, Iberia had two great nautical poles: Tartessia, turned South (to Western Mediterranean and the North of Africa); and Oestrymnis, turned North (to Ireland, Great-Britain and North Atlantic).

I don't mean to be rude but it seems to me that only a (very strong) bias (!) against the Portuguese and the Irish prevents our professional historians to acknowledge the right answer to this (nevertheless very important) problem!

With my best regards,

Dr. Mendonça Correia
(Lisbon, Portugal)
