Our history books tell us that 12,000 years ago, the last Ice Age finally melted away to reveal the Britain we know today.
OR DID IT?
Britain had been under TWO MILES of ice and the seas that now surround us were frozen solid, leaving a huge mass of enormous weight pushing down on our tiny island. This mass had compressed the land so much that the surface sat some half a mile below the current sea level.
SO WHAT REALLY HAPPENED AFTER THE ICE HAD MELTED?
In this book Robert John Langdon explores the probability that when the ice melted, rather than leaving the land mass we now know as Britain it did, in fact, leave a collection of smaller islands and peninsulas caused by river flooding as the ground water table had risen by just 30m higher than today, creating an aquatic tropical landscape.
Quite remarkably, this book shows that Stone Age Man survived the Ice Age and the great flood to go on to develop into a great maritime Civilisation – to date, this unknown society which lived in boats on the waterways and used them to construction our magnificent stone monuments, such as Stonehenge and Avebury that have lasted nearly 10,000 years.
Revisiting accepted Archaeological, Geological and Topological findings Langdon has been able to write an astonishing hypothesis with compelling new proven evidence that not only re-writes our view of prehistoric Britain, but consequently, our view of the ancient world!
This mini-book looks at the 'Megalithic Builders of the 'Post Glacial Flooding' period.
