The Mystery of Doggerland
The Graham Phillips Website
Book Cover
Dramatic marine archaeological evidence has revealed the remains of a sunken land to the north of Great Britain that supported an advanced civilization 1000 years before those in ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, or India. Remembered in Celtic legends and referred to by geologists as North Doggerland or Fairland, this civilization began at least as early as 4000 BCE but was ultimately destroyed by rising sea levels, huge tsunamis, and a terrible epidemic released from melting permafrost during a cataclysmic period of global warming.

The Mystery of Doggerland revels the vast archaeological and historical evidence in support of the existence of the Doggerland civilization, and how the fate of this sophisticated ancient culture is a warning from history - the cataclysmic events that befell this and other early civilizations may well happen again as the world heats up.
Exploring the latest findings, Graham reveals that this ancient culture had sophisticated technology, building techniques, and advanced medical knowledge years beyond their time. He looks at evidence revealed by archaeology and underwater surveys of the many artificial structures, complex settlements, gigantic earthworks, epic monoliths, and huge stone circles dated to more than 5,500 years ago preserved beneath the ground and on the seafloor. He also looks at the last part of Fairland that still survives: Fair Isle, a tiny island some 80 miles north of Scotland. Ultimately, he shows how, when the last vestiges of Doggerland sank beneath the waves around 3100 BCE, its survivors sailed to the British Isles where they established the Megalithic culture that built Stonehenge.
Dating from around 3100 BC, the settlement of Skara Brae, on the Orkney Islands to the north of Scotland, was established by the people of Doggerland after their homeland was destroyed.
The Ring of Brodgar on the Orkney Islands is more than 4500 years old. A similar stone circle, dating from over 1000 years earlier, has been discovered at the bottom of the North Sea.
Stone Circle
Built around 5000 years ago, this is the Maeshowe burial mound on the Orkney Islands. Similar earthworks, very much older, have been found at the bottom of the North Sea.
