How countries of today would look 300 MILLION years ago

A new map of Pangaea, the supercontinent from 300 million years ago, shows where modern day countries would have been located in the ancient land mass. The East Coast of the United States would have bordered North Africa while America's Gulf Coast was nestled against Cuba, according to the graphic representation that outlines the political borders of nation states. Fossil evidence suggests that 300 million years ago there was one super continent surrounded by a single ocean, Panthalassa.


German scientist Alfred Wegener proposed that the process of continental drift began during the Triassic period, around 200 million years ago
