'Britain's Atlantis' found at bottom of North sea -- a huge undersea world swallowed by the sea...
Daily Mail (UK) ^ | Monday, July 2, 2012 | Rob Waugh

Doggerland, a huge area of dry land that stretched from Scotland to Denmark was slowly submerged by water between 18,000 BC and 5,500 BC.

Divers from oil companies have found remains of a 'drowned world' with a population of tens of thousands -- which might once have been the 'real heartland' of Europe.

A team of climatologists, archaeologists and geophysicists has now mapped the area using new data from oil companies -- and revealed the full extent of a 'lost land' once roamed by mammoths...

The research suggests that the populations of these drowned lands could have been tens of thousands, living in an area that stretched from Northern Scotland across to Denmark and down the English Channel as far as the Channel Islands...

'The name was coined for Dogger Bank, but it applies to any of several periods when the North Sea was land,' says Richard Bates of the University of St Andrews. 'Around 20,000 years ago, there was a 'maximum' -- although part of this area would have been covered with ice. When the ice melted, more land was revealed -- but the sea level also rose.

'Through a lot of new data from oil and gas companies, we're able to give form to the landscape -- and make sense of the mammoths found out there, and the reindeer. We're able to understand the types of people who were there.

'People seem to think rising sea levels are a new thing -- but it's a cycle of Earth history that has happened many many times.'

You would think that by now there would be rather tight binding between the several scientific fields aimed at discovering our past: archaeology, anthropology, geology, climatology, dendrochronology, etc.

Yet these discoveries are reported in a "Gee Whiz!" fashion without any reference to the current global climate debate.

How splintered are these peoples' brains?

Academia:

BS degree: you know a little about everything in the field.

MS degree: You have chosen an area to learn more about, so now you know a bunch about some of the topic.

PhD: you have intensely studied a small sector or topic in your field: Now you know almost everything about very little.

Somewhere out there you know all there is to know about almost nothing.

Note the oil company folks, who often think 'out of the box' in order to find the next big play, are the ones who noticed...

I hate to bring up this subject, but it kinda spells out global warming. Massive glaciers...probably ten times the size of what we have today...likely came to slowly melt over the years, and dumped the water which rose and covered Doggerland. Course, this global warming....wasn’t created by man, but simply a natural occurrence.

This all brings up an interesting subject....are we truly finished with global warming, or do we have more ground to cover with water? And what happens when the great glacier periods return? Do we suddenly find Cuba connected to the US landmass? Do we suddenly find a giant open parking lot existing between Orlando and New Orleans?

Joe, here’s another version I learned as a child:
1. BS degree needs no translation.
2. MS degree = More of the Same.
3. PhD degree = Piled Higher and Deeper.

Imagine the cities which may well have existed at the mouths of great river systems: The Potomac/Chesapeake, the Hudson, and the Mississippi, for a few. All under water and sediment on the continental shelf or eroded away by the advancing waves over time. Now think a little further back, to the days when the Missouri River ran north to the Arctic Ocean and wonder what remnants of civilizations might have been buried beneath the ice sheets' advance.

Has mankind's progress been linear? or have we repeatedly risen and fallen, the history lost to legend and then forgotten?

It is fun to ponder, but short of digging up such remnants we won't know.

...and oil exploration.

Our company makes the sensors that are used in much of this exploration. They map the undersea by sending sonar like reverbrations to the ocean floor. I've actually made one of those babies -- well, poured the resin at least.

The way to start a research project with regular people at the front of this....is to project a map with the water levels at 300 feet below what they are now, and include the anticipated landmass. My guess is that we’d find a thousand sites of interest within ten years around both North and South America alone. Folks can fan out and start to dig up spots around the coast of the US, and show evidence of life before Columbus and even the Indians.

This would also solve several mysteries over how Asians (and likely Europeans) came to America over 18,000 years ago. It might explain how tobacco was delivered and used in the mummification efforts in Egypt. And it might explain how the various pyramids (both in Mexico and Egypt), are identical in nature.

Movie: "The Land That Time Forgot"

"Negotiating an underwater tunnel [beneath the ice] to gain the island's interior, those aboard U-33 are amazed to discover a tropical prehistoric world kept warm by volcanic forces. Here dinosaurs that should be long extinct live and roam, as do a curious race of humanoid savages that appear to exhibit all the various phases of Man's evolutionary development. To survive long enough to repair and replenish the U-boat, wartime enemies must put aside their differences and cooperate with one another. But not everyone is playing from the Kumbaya songbook...

The Land That Time Forgot is a thoroughly old fashioned sci-fi/fantasy adventure of the type they weren't really making anymore even in 1975. A lot of this has to do with the script sticking to Burroughs' Victorian style. (His Caprona tales were first published in 1918; as late as World War II he'd still be cranking out novels in the writing style of the 19th Century.) The film's a throwback to the likes of the original King Kong and potboilers such as Unknown Island (1948) and The Land Unknown (1957), only in color."

Doggerland, a huge area of dry land that stretched from Scotland to Denmark was slowly submerged by water between 18,000 BC and 5,500 BC.

The sinking, no doubt, caused by antideluvian SUVs resulting in CO2 buildup.

To continue that idea, take a good look at the glacial terrain in the middle of the continent, and try to track the former watercourses. Where the glacial deposits are thinner, and in former river valleys, at the confluences there should be some signs of settlement.

There is a tremendous amount about humanity's past we just do not know--and few have looked beyond the conventions of what has long been accepted anthropological theory.

thanks for posting this. It reminds me of why I like to pick up arrowheads. I can think about the human who made the arrowheads and what his life was like but in his wildest imagination he could not imagine me and my world.

Thanks. Forgot about that idiot (Democrat Rep Hank Johnson).

What the heck, might as well add this...


Sheila Jackson Lee
Member of the U.S. House
of Representatives
from Texas's 18th district

On a visit to the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in 2005, Jackson Lee made embarrassing news by asking if the Mars Pathfinder had taken an image of the flag planted there in 1969 by Neil Armstrong.[2]

Prior to the 110th Congress, Jackson Lee served on the House Science Committee and on the Subcommittee that oversees space policy and NASA.

Good point.

Of course, this find was uncovered through the work of those evil oil companies....

It’s interesting to reflect on how the climate and land would have changed over time, from subarctic south of the ice to grassland as the ice retreated to the forests found underwater today. The mighty Channel River at some point widened into the English Channel. I wonder if some bright person might have warned of “climate change” as sea levels rose?

Britain fought two naval engagements on Dogger Bank, neither of which was very conclusive. They fought the Dutch back at the time of the American Revolution. Britain actually declared war on the Dutch for giving the Americans so much assistance.

There was also an engagement during WWI where Britain chased a German squadron back to port. Odd to think about sunken ships resting on top of possible archeological sites.

True. If memory serves, an ancient wreck somewhere in the eastern Med or maybe the Aegean was found under a modern wreck, and was on top of an even more ancient wreck. It was a bad spot for many a skipper.
