The second guest speaker, Robert J King, gave a fascinating talk about a map of the world published in 1531 that shows a large promontory attached to the continent of TERRA AVSTRALIS and extending northward almost to the Tropic of Capricorn: this promontory is named REGIO PATALIS, the "Region of Patala".

Reports have appeared in Endeavour Lines.
