Where do we answer the picture quiz question? I think it's Chile.

EDIT: Nevermind, checked the whole map - now I think it's California.

Macbeth: Wonderfully written. Thanks Paul

Also, the map is definitely California and Baja California.

Edit: Not that the others aren't wonderful, I just haven't read 'em yet...

Thanks for the feedback. I hope the information presented would be of some value.

Aside from a description of moderation and the various classifications , I had an enjoyable moment or two with the article's content. Credit also goes to our editor for his picturesque creative liberties.

I also think the island is Baja California. But Baja California isn't an island. lol Must be a publishing error for the map.

Although we don't have the date of the map, it appears to be mid-late 16th  century.  The California coast had been explored by the Spanish, and visited by Drake in the 1570s.  The size of the land mass surely makes it Baja California - just mistaken for an island.
