The Northern Coasts of Doggerland and the Colonisation of Norway at the End of the Ice Age
Due to the need for a national strategy for offshore wind farms in Norway, a small and preliminary joint archaeological and geological research project was conducted. The aim of the investigation was
Norway: Submerged Stone Age from a Norwegian Perspective
The presence of submerged Stone Age sites along the Norwegian coast has been recognised for a long time. Until recently, however, they have not been treated as a topic of interest. From shallow
Evidence of an ice-dammed lake outburst in the North Sea during the last deglaciation
Abstract Recent reconstructions suggest that the British-Irish and Fennoscandian ice sheets coalesced and covered the central and northern North Sea from ca. 26 cal. ka BP and until ca. 19 cal. ka
Ice sheets, oceanic circulation & sea surface conditions: the NW European margin during the last 35,000 years
The north-western European continental margin provides a key area for detailed investigations of changes within the inflow of Atlantic warm surface currents, fluctuations in continental ice sheets
Doggerland and the Lost Frontiers Project (2015–2020)
As this volume, the final monograph of the SPLASHCOS network, was being finalised, the European Research Council agreed to fund a major new project relating to the marine palaeolandscapes of the


Deglaciation, sea-level change and the Holocene colonization of Norway
Abstract The Norwegian coast facing the Atlantic Ocean was ice free as early as the Allerød oscillation in the late Pleistocene. The landscape was probably habitable for humans. It has, therefore,
Foraminiferal stratigraphy of Quaternary deposits in the Roar, Skjold and Dan fields, central North Sea
Foraminifera from four boreholes through Quaternary deposits at Roar, Skjold and Dan in the central North Sea have been examined. Shallow marine Eemian deposits were represented over the whole area,
The catastrophic final flooding of Doggerland by the Storegga Slide Tsunami.
Around 8200 calBP, large parts of the now submerged North Sea continental shelf (‘Doggerland’) were catastrophically flooded by the Storegga Slide tsunami, one of the largest tsunamis known for the
Middle and Late Weichselian (Devensian) glaciation history of south-western Norway, North Sea and eastern UK
Data from eastern England, Scotland, the northern North Sea and western Norway have been compiled in order to outline our current knowledge of the Middle and Late Weichselian glacial history of this
The Pleistocene Glaciations of the North Sea Basin
We review the Quaternary geology of the North Sea area, summarising evidence for extents, configurations and timing of former glacial activity, focusing attention on key sites across the basin, and
Devensian late-glacial gas escape in the central North Sea
Abstract An examination of deep-tow boomer records of the acoustically well-layered Witch Ground Formation in the central North Sea has revealed buried pockmarks. The distribution of these features
A submerged beach between Norway and Ekofisk in the North Sea
Abstract On a recent geophysical pipeline route survey between the SW coast of Norway and the Ekofisk oil field in the North Sea a submerged beach deposit was discovered. The beach is located on the
Late Pleistocene and Holocene depositional systems and the palaeogeography of the Dogger Bank, North Sea
Abstract 3D seismic data from the Dogger Bank, North Sea, allow the mapping of Late Pleistocene and Holocene depositional systems in unprecedented detail. The data demonstrate that glacial processes
Palaeoenvironments of insular Southeast Asia during the Last Glacial Period: a savanna corridor in Sundaland?
Abstract Consideration of a range of evidence from geomorphology, palynology, biogeography and vegetation/climate modelling suggests that a north-south ‘savanna corridor’ did exist through the
Doggerland: a Speculative Survey.
Archaeologists tend to refer to the land that once existed between Britain and the continent as a landbridge. It was, however, a landscape as habitable as neighbouring regions, and here called
