An ambitious archaeological project  funded over the next five years by the European Union’s European Research Council aims to transform the understanding of our pre-historic past.  Scientists hope to find evidence of human activity in an immense submerged island once located between Britain and Scandinavia. It’s believed that the so called “North Sea Atlantis” was engulfed by rising sea levels between 7,500 B.C and 5,500 B.C. due to the melting of sub-Artic ice. From the bottom of the sea, archaeologists plan to recover evidence of flint tool manufacture and DNA of animal and plant species. Using high definition sonars, the scientists also expect to produce maps of the original landscape topography and, hopefully, discover structures and monuments built by these lost sea tribes!
