Yeah ,sorry bout that Carolyn  Tongue

Seriously, I think Kircher's map is extremely important,Especially since he was considered the most learned man in his day.

I read in a book by Colin Wilson that Kircher claimed the map was taken from Egypt by Julius Caesar ,it would seem that he took it from the Library of Alexandria.Apparently part of the library was damaged in the conquest and Caesar is reputed to have lectured the locals for resisting him,saying that the library would not have been damaged if you did'nt resist.! I am not sure of the source for that apocryphal story ,can someone help out ??

Kirchers claims must be from the book that his map came from ,Mundus Subterraneous. I can't find a copy anywhere.
