The configuration of the mainland corresponded to the cards, obtained as a result of modern research. With help seismic sensing confirmed details hidden under the ice, but indicated on old maps. Those. existed before civilization that made maps before the glacier of the mainland Antarctic. About 10-12 thousand years ago on Earth, disaster, climate changed, the earth began to become covered with ice.
