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.'

Gee, the remnants of a large flood, now were have I heard of that before?

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?
,,,and oil exploration.
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.
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.
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.
"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."

But what about his rendition of Atlanta?
The sinking, no doubt, caused by antideluvian SUVs resulting in CO2 buildup.
I went and watched that trailer
But thx for posting, I am sure I saw this on Saturday tv when I was a kid. Just so similar to about 200 other movies.
