Sea

All oceans, waterfalls, pools, rivers and streams came from the giant Ymir’s blood. Nordic Creation Myth

A fascinating radio programme tracing the land that once existed and joined Great Britain and the continent. The programme which was broadcast last Saturday can be found here on BBCi Player

Open Country – Helen Mark explores a land lost beneath the waves near Craster on the Northumbrian coast.  Archaeologists, with the help of storyteller Hugh Lupton, evoke the contours of Doggerland, reclaimed by the North Sea at the end of the last Ice Age.

There is also an interesting book that charts this landscape under the sea..

Europe’s Lost World – the rediscovery of Doggerland, written by Vincent Gaffney, Simon Fitch & David Smith.
