Map of the day: Pangaea

Map of Pangaea.

Map originally created by Massimo at MI LABORATORIO DE IDEAS

The map above shows Pangaea, a supercontinent that existed from 300 million to 175 million years ago, with modern international borders.

Needless to say it would make international relations a little bit more complicated. Major changes include:

  • The United States now borders a few new countries including Morocco, Mauritania, Senegal and Cuba.
  • Spain now has a land border with Algeria.
  • Italy now borders Tunisia.
  • Greece borders Libya.
  • Brazil borders a whole bunch of new states from Namibia in the south to Liberia in the north.
  • India now finds itself in the southern hemisphere, right next to Antarctica.
  • You could walk from Australia to Tibet (which is no longer attached to China)
  • While China has lost Tibet it has gained a massive amount of new coastline.
