Guided tour through the exhibition 'Doggerland' at the Rijksmuseum van Oudheden, Leiden
Curator Luc Amkreutz guides you through the exhibition ‘Doggerland – Lost World in the North Sea' at the Rijksmuseum van Oudheden (Leiden, the Netherlands). He takes you on a trip through time of a million years and shows you the highlights of this exhibition.
Doggerland fascinates me. I want to sit and study the tools. Google UBC/MOA.
The bulk of the holdings don't interest me much except the artifacts from the Pacific Northwest. They let me sit and draw, really an enjoyable experience.
We have had a similar sea level rise, possibly 100m or more, on Canada's west coast. Whole villages had to be uprooted and moved "inland" as the glaciers melted. The First Nations carry a very accurate oral history that is now known to span some 14,500 years at least. They know what happened.
In the last 2 years, if my memory serves, some people examined bathymetric maps of Doggerland. Their express purpose was to pick a most likely site to go camping as a community of people.
The next step was to do some dredging on the spot that they had selected.
BINGO! Up comes all sorts of worked flint stones.
This might have been summarized and reported in ScienceDaily.com.
@Robson Valley - on the programme they said they had mapped all of it for oil and wind farms and they wanted to work out where best to explore further. Particularly likely areas that had the range of flora and fauna where they may be able to target for exploration.
