Map of Cannibalism - a traditional example

Here's a traditional example of a geographic map, which represents the global spread of cannibalism. I'm posting it as it may end up relating to my topic.

This map, from the German/Austrian publisher A. Hartleben, dating from the early 20th century by the look of it, presents a map of the range of anthropophagy, both contemporary (in red) and historical (in yellow).

A more up-to-date map would have to include Armin Meiwes, the German internet cannibal.
