Map Showing Where Today’s Countries Would Be Located on Pangea

PangaeaWhere would today’s countries be located on Pangea? The map shown here (from Open Culture) gives a pretty good guess at it.

It’s amazing to think that approximately 300 million years ago, all the countries and continents that we recognise today were part of one big supercontinent. It’s beautiful to see how South America slots neatly into the west coast of Africa, and how North America wraps around it. Really impresses upon you the passage of time and the power of plate tectonic movements over millions of years.

Who knows what will happen in the next few million years? Onwards!
