He says he found that map in one of the US archives.
The political scientist published his finding on a social network page and wrote that it was made in Frankfurt in 1638. "Look, what a wonderful thing I found before my visit to the USA, a few months in advance I phoned to American friends and with their help found another ancient map of Kazakhstan. This map was printed in 1638 in Frankfurt. Before, we had a copy of it, now the original is in our hands" - writes Yerlan Karin. The map clearly marked historical names of the time, the names of localities and territorial units as "Nogay", "Ak Orda", "Kazakhs-Tatars", "Dzungaria", etc.
This discovery of the political scientist, who is particularly interested in the heritage of Alash and the Kazakh history, social network users highly appreciated.
