Coloured 8th century world map known as the Turin Map of the world. The map shows Adam and Eve (upper centre), the world's first human inhabitants (according to the Bible), standing on top of the world. The world is surrounded by the blue ocean and the four winds (figures blowing horns). The three continents known at that time are shown in the map: Europe (lower left), Asia (where Adam & Eve are standing), and Africa (lower right). Britain and Scotland are islands in the encircling sea just outside Europe. This image is from A Book of Discovery by M.B. Synge.
