Britain's drowned landscapes

Britain's drowned landscapes
trefwoorden: Uk - onderwaterarcheologie - Noordzee - Kanaal
New underwater technology to reveal an age when the UK was linked to Europe by plains and forests.
Herds of reindeer and horses migrated across its plains, huge forests covered much of the countryside and men and women made their homes by rivers and lakes.
