'Britain's Atlantis' - a hidden underwater world swallowed by the North Sea - has been discovered by divers working with science teams from the University of St Andrews.
Doggerland, a huge area of dry land that stretched from Scotland to Denmark was slowly submerged by water between 18,000 BC and 5,500 BC.
Divers from oil companies have found remains of a 'drowned world' with a population of tens of thousands - which might once have been the 'real heartland' of Europe.
A team of climatologists, archaeologists and geophysicists has now mapped the area using new data from oil companies - and revealed the full extent of a 'lost land' once roamed by mammoths.

The fact that Doggerland was occupied has been known for some time I thought? But referring to it as "Britain's Atlantis" is a bit too sensationalistic for my liking because as I understand it this was just a humble farming community and not some mythological lost kingdom of untold wealth and power.
How about the small villages that get submerged when we make reservoirs,can we also refer to them as "(insert name of county here) Atlantis".
