Ankara University and Turkish National Commission for UNESCO, on the occasion of “500th anniversary of the Piri Reis World Map” are going to organize an “International Symposium on Piri Reis”, known as the creator of the rare world map from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Piri Reis World Map is an invaluable piece of the world’s documentary heritage as it provides insight on the history of its time. It is therefore part of the Memory of the World and should be made better known.
