Book of Mormon Lands Lehite Old World Map January 2016

This is my best effort at a map of the Book of Mormon lands traversed by Lehi and his family in the Old World.
Old World Book of Mormon Lands ca. 600 BC
This map derives from the excellent work done by LDS explorers of the Arabian Peninsula:
  • Lynn and Hope Hilton
  • Warren Aston
  • George Potter, Richard Wellington, and Craig Thorsted
Ric Hauck has obtained a permit from the Omani government to dig Khor Khofot. Sponsored by the Khor Khofot Foundation, an expedition with 5 archaeologists (all but 1 not of our faith) and a number of support personnel begins their first field season on or about February 5, 2016. This will be the first archaeological dig at a likely Book of Mormon site whose correlation enjoys near consensus support among LDS Book of Mormon scholars.

My best effort at a map of Book of Mormon lands in the New World is here.
