The lost world of Doggerland as it may have looked 10,000 years ago;



The retreat of the the polar ice caps and subsequent rise in sea levels flooded the North Sea plain.

Couple of articles about Doggerland;

I enjoyed that Trike.

Somewhere upstairs, carefully wrapped up and stored in a box along with piles of other fossils, I've got a complete mammoth molar, which was dredged up by a fishing boat from close to the Dogger Bank off East Anglia. I'll see if I can locate it and post a pic.

Triceratops,

thanks for the link but the first URL seems not to work. I tried in the search box of "Nature" with "doggerbank" and it gives only two hits en not your link...

Paul, I had problems posting the link originally, now it's gone. Have changed it for a wiki article.
