This map, for example.

What the fuck is wrong with Yugoslavia? France, Greece, the Soviet Union and the Benelux should not look like that either.

Yep, that's really inaccurate.

Wow, that is incredibly shitty. Though I appreciate it's an advert or something similar, obviously not used for navigation.

Does that map have Florida as an island?
I wonder how they got that idea.

accurate.

>>596547
That's Cuba you dummy dumb dumbz.

Florida is still shown as a peninsula.

>>596547
That is obviously Cuba.

The Matthew Paris map of Scotland c1250.

The point where the rivers (the Forth and Clyde) is Stirling Bridge. Interestingly, "Scotia" only refers to the area north of the bridge.

And, even better, Scotland according to the works of Ptolemy.

>>596598
Do flat-earthers with this kind of image not understand basic geometry?
>>
>>597249
How do you even get this impression? I doubt any Roman expeditionary could claim they got past the Firth of Forth by going directly east.
