'Britain's Atlantis' Found Under North Sea
A vast, once-inhabited area that was submerged by the North Sea thousands of
years ago has been discovered by divers working with oil companies and science
teams from several British universities.
The underwater world, being called Doggerland and Britain's Atlantis,
stretched from Scotland to Denmark when Britain was not an island but connected
to the European continent. It was gradually submerged by water between 18,000
B.C. and 5,500 B.C., according to researchers.
"Divers from oil companies have found remains of a 'drowned world' with a
population of tens of thousands, which might have once been the 'real heartland'
of Europe," Britain's Daily Mail reported.
"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."
