"Doggerland – et forhistorisk landskab g(l)emt under Nordsøens bølger"

Beneath the waves of the North Sea lies a hidden and forgotten landscape. For approx. 20,000 years ago, there was landlocked land between Denmark and England, and the land we call Doggerland was most likely home to the Stone Age people. We do not know much about this landscape, but using geophysical data we have been able to map past river systems and floodplains where humans may have resided and had campsites. This lecture is about how far we are with the mapping of Doggerland, and what perspectives it has for our geological and archaeological understanding of the North Sea.

Also do not miss Rasmus Andreasen and Erik Thomsen’s lectures at 14.30 and 16.30, “Danmarkshistorien skrives om: Skrydstrup- og Egtvedpigen var nok ikke kosmopolitter”
