Also all three of them think that Doggerland/Dogger Island was the center of the Megalithic Culture, and that it spread from there to western Europe and even the Mediterranean.
Deruelle and Tristan think it stayed above seal level longer than is always assumed,
-a- because science is wrong, and
-b- it was being protected by dikes (of which no one up to now has found any traces of on the botton of the North Sea).
Like I have often said in the Doggerland thread, some people need to stretch facts to make an event or artifact fit into their pet theory.
You can believe me, the OLB date for the destruction of Atland - 2193 BC - and the whole OLB for that matter, would fit perfectly into their theory, but as far as I know, they never mentioned the OLB in their writings.
You, Alewijn, say that you never read in the OLB that Atland was located in the North Sea. Many others who wrote about the OLB would not agree with you; they all mention the North Sea.
If you can prove without a doubt that something catastrophic happened around 2193 BC, that some island - a center of ancient Megalithic civilization - sank beneath the waves, then I would like to hear about it.
