World's Oldest Map - 14,000 years old

This is really pretty cool. Isn't it amazing the creativity and capacity of the human being?

World's oldest map: Spanish cave has landscape from 14,000 years ago
Archaeologists have discovered what they believe is man's earliest map, dating from almost 14,000 years ago.

A stone tablet found in a cave in Abauntz in the Navarra region of northern Spain is believed to contain the earliest known representation of a landscape.

Engravings on the stone, which measures less than seven inches by five inches, and is less than an inch thick, appear to depict mountains, meandering rivers and areas of good foraging and hunting.
We'll be studying early humans in the first chapter: "The First Humans."
