Sea Level Was Higher During The Medieval Warm Period
Real Science ^ | 6-18-2015 | stevengoddard

The Norman castle at Pevensey Bay is one of the most historic sites in Britain. It is built inside of a Roman wall, and was William the Conqueror’s headquarters. It was also used as a defense outpost by Brits and Americans in WWII

It is currently several miles from the sea, but at the time when the Romans and Normans built the structures, the water lapped right up to the edge of the stone. The map below shows the bay 900 years ago, and the current seashore as a dashed line.

Satellite image of Pevensey Castle today...

Pevensey Bay Today

Go to the link and zoom out a little bit....you can clearly see where the castle is relative to the current waterline. If the old map is correct, then it is true that the sea level was higher then, proving that the MWP was NOT a "localized weather phenomena", but in fact a global one.

I would post the satellite image and put it right next to the map for comparison, but I don’t know how to do that...

A little help anyone?

..... With ships periodically being uncovered in the desert US desert areas .... it appears there was also navigable water in the Desert Southwest of America.

Surely you mean canoes.

Maybe they can recover that mural showing William The Conqueror and his men riding their Seahorses into battle./

Climate experts say that that there was no Medieval Warm Period, because they are paid to lie for White House political purposes.

An example of isostatic rebound. Land areas that were covered by continental ice sheets during the most recent ice age were depressed by the weight of the ice. They have been rebounding very slowly since the ice disappeared. The same effect can be seen in the Great Lakes. This rebound continues to this day.

As a side note to this thread, I understand that England’s Glastonbury was possibly an island in medieval times. If such was the case, then that would somewhat complement the info presented in this thread about Pevensey Bay.

BTW, have the Dutch built their dikes taller to accomodate the rising seas as a consequence of PC global warming?

.... Weeeeeeell ...... Local southwest lore of ancient ships such as galeons, viking ships etc supposedly found in California's Colorado, Mojave and other Deserts. Since after the U.S. Civil War, stories have been told about buried ships hidden in the desert lands north of the Gulf of California.

Aparently The Salton Sea was once part of an inland water network. It was called Lake Cahuilla by Native Americans.

Of course the seas were higher during the Medieval times.
It was gloBull warming from all of that industrial pollution during the dark ages. Jus axe Al Gore.
Sheesh.

This rebound continues to this day.

Awww, c'mon. Don't be usin' any of that scientific historical geology stuff on us -- it makes our heads hurt.

I recently ran across a post elsewhere by a lady who used a video of an Alaskan glacier "calving" as proof we're all going to die from AGW. She should have been around when those 2-mile-high glaciers that covered her home city of Montreal began to melt and break up!

“With ships periodically being uncovered in the desert US desert areas”

Those were ancient space ships — alien spaceships.

That’s a lot of rebound over only 900 years...looks like several feet maybe?

I’ve read legends of Spanish ships being sighted in Death Valley. Interesting legend...
