Shortly after her husband's death, the author of the National Book Critics Circle Award finalist Old Man Goya became fascinated with Doggerland, the vast once-populated stretch of land that connected Great Britain to Continental Europe thousands of years ago but is now under the North Sea. Driven to explore the lives of the people who lived there as revealed through artifacts and the fossil record, Julia Blackburn brings us along on her journey, introducing the paleontologists, archaeologists, fishermen, and fellow Doggerland enthusiasts she meets along the way. What emerges is a lyrical exploration—part travelogue and part history—and a profound meditation on time and the immensity of the past.
