Hey David, I don’t know if you still get a notification for comments that get posted here, but I have an idea about the old Anglo-Saxon map of the world. It either got uploaded sideways or the English had a different view about the orientation of the world. I think that the island in the bottom left of the map is Iceland. Above it is the islands off of Scotland. To the right of Iceland is Ireland with Britain above it. To the right of that is France and Spain. Above England is a Peninsula that is likely Denmark. Above and to the left of that is an island that probably represents Norway and Sweden. The landmass at the bottom right is Africa. The lake in the middle is the Mediterranean and the smaller lake connected to it is the Black Sea. The even smaller lake connected to the Mediterranean is the Adriatic Sea. The red river running off of the center lake is the Nile River. The land at the top of the map is the Middle East. Do you think that this might be a good explanation? It obviously isn’t meant to be used by a sailor, but it might work well enough for someone trying to get a rough understanding of the world.
