Stone Age Settlement Found Under English Channel


news.yahoo.com

Erosion on the floor of the English Channel is revealing the remains of a busy Stone Age settlement, from a time when Europe and Britain were still linked by land, a team of archaeologists says.

Lobsters mucking around the seabed at the site about 10 years ago revealed a cache of Mesolithic flints, prompting further excavations that uncovered two hearths (ancient ovens) dangling precariously from the edge of an underwater cliff.

Seems there is so much history covered in water.
This find is around 8000 years old.

Looks like this site was preserved very well because of the soot that was deposited over it.
