mediaevalist: (King Arthur as a girl)
[personal profile] mediaevalist
Previously, archaeologists had been searching for the mediaeval city of Dunwich, the capital of East Anglia 1,500 years ago. But now it looks as if just beyond that was an entire country that was slowly submerged between between 18,000 BC and 5,500 BC, well before the mediaeval period.

'Britain's Atlantis' found at bottom of North sea - a huge undersea world swallowed by the sea in 6500BC

The article isn't clear about whether there's any connection between the earlier project and this one, if in searching for Dunwich, evidence of a much older civilisation was discovered. From my own view, these are probably unrelated except for the fact that undersea archaeology seems to be the big thing now for much of archaeology in Britain.
