Pangea, the prehistoric landmass, with modern day borders
Without accounting for changes in sea level, etc. here is a wonderful look at our world map reformed into the super continent known as Pangea.

Of course a rough approximation, it is still a fascinating study back through the long strange trip of geologic time.
An equally fascinating discussion exists at reddit.com, from whence this map was borrowed.
