The Medieval Era, is fantastic and there's still a lot to be done...
It's incredible how far people ventured, going against all of their fears.

In the same site, there's an interesting bibliography on the subject. I'll past the link just to make it easier to find.

The Medieval Sourcebook (I love that site) has a collection of maps from Muir's Historical Atlas (1911).

The maps are in a modern style with medieval borders.

Europe circa 900 A.D.

I had a class in my 2nd year of college that was called "Medieval Methodology", the Medieval Sourcebook was a must for everyone. I can't believe I totally forgot about it. Thanks for bringing it up. It's a great site.

Fantastic thread. Never heard of the Khazars before. Great to learn something new. Here's a link.

http://www.khazaria.com/

Also explains in one glance why the Byzantines went after Bulgaria.

I typed in balkan into google, and then clicked on images to find a host of maps there (if you haven't done so already). I was pleasantly distracted by the fact that the 4th image was one of 4 lovely lady bottoms. With flags drawn on. Hurrah!

heres a map made by Hadji Ahmed, there is evidenced that he found Phoenician scrolls that had be lost for centuries. Some historians say the the Phoenicians mapped the earth long ago with very accurate bearings.
