"North is at the bottom:" Once Again We Learn That the Map is Not the Territory

Interesting how disorienting it is to have North at the bottom of the page. Would have to hold the atlas upside down to get my brain to accept the geography.

Beautiful art work. The illustrations are a real boon to historians and archeologists. Don't think I've ever seen anything quite like this. But then I'm not an historian or archeologist.

And if folks were playing Assasin's Creed, and actually reading the stuff involved in the game, they MIGHT have a well founded comprehension of
how much "unsupervised" work, and diligence,(and maintenance) is involved in invading "new" territory!
