It is always informative to look at old maps. They show how the cartographers saw the world and how the passage of the map makers revealed the passage of settlements in this case of colonel Europeans.
This collection of maps are interesting as they show how mysterious the African continent was to Europeans. With deep expeditions into the continent expensive, difficult, and dangerous, central Africa remained very much a mystery into the 20th century. The Mountains of the Moon and the Mountains of Kong, the supposed sources of the Niger and Nile river, were completely fabricated guesswork which remained on maps until the 20th century. For central Africa, rather than make guesses as to the terrain, cartographers frequently left the area blank or with scant details.
Maps come in all shapes and sizes. This one shows the divisions in Africa and how its been shaped and defined since colonization.
