  • News from Doggerland

    Heard an item on the BBC morning news programme. Marine archaeologists investigating what was once the coast line of the now submerged Doggerland that used to connect Britain and the Continent have discovered the remains of a Neolithic boat yard with flint tools and the World's oldest piece of string (woven from nettle fibres) all over 10,000 years old. Also found was some early grain which it is believed was not local which suggests that trade had already developed.

    Wonder if Fred and Wilma used to visit for a weekend's sailing?

          'orse was a food animal at that period and much too small to be ridden anyway
