Bridge Under Troubled Waters
Made of fragments from a sediment core excavated from below the seabed, and glacial clays.
After the last Ice Age, when the North Sea was frozen in a glacier, Britain was joined to mainland Europe by a fertile lowland inhabited by thousands. As temperatures rose the glacier melted and Doggerland became submerged. We continue on the same warming trajectory.
Shown at AWARD BCB 2021 and Thamesside Gallery on the eve of Brexit 2020. With thanks to Proff. Vincent Gaffney and Europe’s Lost Frontiers.
