Doggerland--There's Mammoths under the North Sea!

["Quien mato los gran mumuts" Sedwick C PLoS Biology Vol. 6, No. 4, e99, Wikimedia]

In a comment on an earlier post on Boulognia (the land under the English Channel--I kid you not!) Kramis mentioned Doggerland and the thought of mammoths and lions not to mention our Stone Age ancestors and Neanderthals roaming the tundra which has since become the sea bed of the southern bit of the North Sea caught my imagination.

National Geographic gives its version of this "Stone Age Atlantis". And here's a Nature article.

The world is such an interesting place my brain is buzzing with ideas. Must finish my Syrian djinni story first! and the edits on "Angel Thief" (honest, I'm doing them, Deb) which has a gorgeous Australian djinni. Ah, but Tundra and lost worlds. *sigh* why aren't there more hours in the day?


  1. It is like Ace Age with magic instead of Sid the sloth. I have have been asking for more hours in the day for years and it is still only 24. A sexy Australian who can pass up one of them yum!
