For some 24 years in the 1500s map makers included Australia on their world maps - long before Australia was actually ‘discovered’ by Europeans, according to conventional history.

This book presents evidence that the ancient Greeks landed in the Americas and circumnavigated the world more than 1300 years before the voyage of Magellan. This great expedition was recorded by the Greeks and the resultant maps and scrolls stored in the Great Library of Alexandria. There they remained until 340–345AD when Roman troops removed selected items and took them back to Italy.
History sadly records that in 390AD the then Bishop of Alexandria ordered the library’s entire contents, some 700,000 scrolls, maps and other artefacts, burnt or smashed.

This research traces what really happened in those turbulent times and explains how some of these records were not destroyed but remained intact for map makers to rediscover more than one thousand years later. Importantly, it explores how the magnificent works of ancient master map maker Claudius Ptolemy were found and redrawn in the 1300s. Strangely, though the original ancient maps were found, it is clear that those who drew new maps from them did not fully understand the extent of what the ancient Greek voyagers had achieved.

Professor David Bellamy remarks “To the Ends of the Earth" is a cross between a puzzle book you learn from as you play the games and a coffee table book you just have to pick up again and again. Coming spiced with the best of Agatha Christie and Ngaio Marsh plots, you are going to have to read it to the very sweet or sour end. That is why I am not going to spoil your quality reading time by laying down a road map of any kind. Oh to have been a member of one of those ancient crews who found that the choice bits of the Garden of Eden were already overflowing with the descendants of Eve.”

In February 2009 the author visited Rarotonga to examine a monument close to a small harbour on the island. As a focal point for New Zealand Maori stories it is popularly said to be the place from which a so called ‘Great Fleet’ of Maori canoes set sail for New Zealand in around 1340–1350AD.
This monument was mentioned in good faith in the first edition of To the Ends of the Earth. However, since then the author has discovered that Maori historians have known for some time that in reality there was no ‘Great Fleet’ of canoes that sailed from Rarotonga to New Zealand. The fleet story was manufactured and the monument built and erected in Rarotonga, all to support a contrived invention about Maori arrival in New Zealand.
Real history is about recording facts, not promoting myths. Accordingly the record is set straight in this second edition.PRICE INCLUDES FREIGHT WITHIN NZ
