The earliest map of Africa is believed to have been created in 1389 and is called the "Da Ming Hun Yi Tu" which shows the continent as part of a wider map of the Ming Dynasty. Created in silk it shows Africa more than a hundred years before the first western explorers from Portugal started to chart parts of Africa's coastline. The map appears (above) to show Lake Victoria and the River Nile.
