Doggerland – Europe’s lost world

Continuing with my recent articles on maps is the recent research uncovering more about Doggerland.

Doggerland, as I’m sure you’ll know, was the low low lying land that joined Britain to the European mainland prior to it being lost to rising sea waters. Numerous research projects have discovered more about this lost world, notably by Professor Vince Gaffney in his book Europe’s Lost World: The rediscovery of Doggerland.

Prof Gaffney is recorded in an hour long talk at DigVentures about the science in uncovering Doggerland. It’s not a particularly clear video, and the sound is poor – but hey, if you’re keen to know more it might prove useful. Otherwise, you can digest the academic work of Prof Gaffney and his team HERE. [Click on image to expand].
