3. Moli del Salt Map: created nearly 14,000 years ago

This recently found map was discovered at the site of Moli del Salt in Spain and is believed to date back to the Upper Paleolithic, some 13,800 years ago. According to reports, it depicts a hunter-gatherer campsite.

The map was carved on a slab roughly 18 centimeters wide, 8.5 centimeters high and around 3.6 centimeters thick. Dr. Manuel Vaquero of the Rovira and Virgili University and Dr. Marcos García-Diez of the University of the Basque Country said that: “It displays seven semicircular motifs.”

The Moli del Salt slab is now housed in the Institute of Human Paleoecology and Social Evolution in Tarragona, Spain.
