Changes in Terminology - Lesson Summary

The information that we have about our history has gone through a lot of revisions to take on its current form.

The 1154 A.D. world map by Arab cartographer Al Idrisi was oriented with the South Pole at the top as a result the view of India and Sri Lanka is upside down.

As the science of cartography evolved, more accurate versions of the map were made.

When historian study records they need to be sensitive about the context in which the information was penned down.
