From an old mariner's chart, drawn in 1525, on display in the British Museum in London, outlining the North American coastline
and adjacent waters. The cartographer made some intriguing notations on areas of the map that represented regions not yet
explored. He wrote: "Here be giants," "Here be fiery scorpions," and "Here be dragons." Eventually, the map came into
the possession of Sir John Franklin, a British explorer in the early 1800s. Scratching out the fearful inscriptions, he wrote
these words across the map: "HERE IS GOD."
