BBC: Lost world warning from North Sea

BBC NEWS | UK | Education | Lost world warning from North Sea: "Archaeologists are uncovering a huge prehistoric 'lost country' hidden below the North Sea.

This lost landscape, where hunter-gatherer communities once lived, was swallowed by rising water levels at the end of the last ice age.

University of Birmingham researchers are heralding 'stunning' findings as they map the 'best-preserved prehistoric landscape in Europe'.

This large plain disappeared below the water more than 8,000 years ago."
