Before God and Allah this was the known world. Places to the North, East and South had a history too. You can read it.
To the west, in the New World, history was lost. One can read about the Incas and Mayans and Aztecs but their words vanished from the earth. Nothing in writing survived the Spanish conquest.

Their cities achieved population densities that more than rivaled England or Spain. Every bit of that is lost and gone. It was as if they had no Plato or Cicero or Trajan.
