I will be working on this hoop during the time of travelling from country to country, crossing two seas. Sailing between the UK and the Netherlands, makes me aware of crossing Doggerland, the fast unexplored and archaeological treasure, that lies is beneath the North Sea. Doggerland was flooded by rising sea levels around 6,500–6,200 BC. It was probably a rich habitat with human habitation in the Mesolithic period.
More land might be claimed by rising sea levels in the near future. Half of the Netherlands lies beneath sea level. Musing over this, the ferry keeps sailing over Doggerland. I wish that I could see what was beneath the water. Villages? Stone circles? It must be fascinating!
