The undertaking was driven by researchers from the University of Bradford, and Ghent University.Seismic mapping researcher Dr Simon Fitch, from the University of Bradford, stated: it was “the beginning of an entirely different revelation in archeological science”.
He said it was the first run through curios from 8,000 years prior had been found so out of sight sea.The groups have gone through the previous two years reproducing and demonstrating the suffocated scene of Doggerland utilizing information given by oil, gas, wind and coal businesses, before the effective investigation a month ago.
