The Atlantic Ocean was created as North America and Europe became separate continents. In part two, the Marsupians are traveling anytime, anyplace, anyspace. Part three takes the reader back to Mesolithic times when human beings moved close to the glaciers of Northern Europe. The people learned to adapt as the earth began to warm with the last ice age. We are still experiencing this ice age today.

The meal they ate in the inn was boiled cabbage, sliced cooked meats, and bread with a cup of red wine. There was horseradish to flavor the beef and butter to spread on the brot. They sat beside the big heating and cooking fireplace. A kettle hung from a hinged iron hook that pivoted over the fire. The fireplace was so large that they were almost sitting inside it. The warmth felt inviting and good. A tall canister of pigs knuckles simmered by the burning logs and an enormous pot of soup slow cooked on another hinge that could swing out to ladle a bowl of potato chowder. Their guest had not yet arrived. How did you come to know Geert of Deventer? the Landgraf asked Jan Cele making table conversation. We were at the university together at Prague. Prague. Thats impressive. The capitol of the Holy Roman Empire. For being so far to the east, it is impressive Cele affirmed. The city of Good King Wenceslaus, the Landgraf exchanged. I know a Christmas carol about him, chimed in Gretel. Good King Wenceslaus looked out On the Feast of Stephen Where the snow lay round about Deep and crisp and even. Bravo! the men clapped and Gretel was embarrassed. But she was beginning to like the conversation of schooled companions. I would like to be educated like yourselves, she blushed. John Cele came to her rescue. So you shall be and more, he said foreshadowing a bright future. I would like that very much. Education, affirmed the Landgraf, will set you free to be. . . I believe that! John Cele said. Free to be! That is the question and answer education offers.

Northumbria was one of the great kingdoms of Britain in the Dark Ages, enduring longer than the Roman Empire. Yet it has been all but forgotten. This book puts Northumbria back in its rightful place, at the heart of British history. From the impregnable fastness of Bamburgh Castle, the kings of Northumbria ruled a vast area, and held sway as High Kings of Britain. From the tidal island of Lindisfarne, extraordinary saints and learned scholars brought Christianity and civilization to the rest of the country. Now, thanks to the ongoing work of a dedicated team of archaeologists this story is slowly being brought to light. The excavations at Bamburgh Castle have revealed a society of unsuspected sophistication and elegance, capable of creating swords and jewellery unparalleled before or since, and works of art and devotion that still fill the beholder with wonder.

This excellent book, which deserves a wide readership, reports on the work of the North Sea Palaeolandscapes Project, which has been researching the fascinating lost landscape of Doggerland which until the end of the last Ice Age connected Britain to the continent in the North Sea area. It aims to make the findings available to a general readership, and show just how impressive they have been, with nearly 23,000km2 mapped. The techniques used to reconstruct the landscape are explained, and conclusions and speculation about the climate and vegetation of the area in the Mesolithic offered. It also tells the story of the rediscovery of Doggerland, and the Mesolithic landscape more generally, from the pioneering work of Clement Reid in the nineteenth century, to the research of Grahame Clark and Bryony Coles in the twentieth. It's also worth pointing out just how well produced and illustrated the book is, and one can only hope that it can spark public interest in a comparatively little known phase of our prehistory.
