Further to my article on Essex here is one on Kent with a feature on Coldrum.
|Islands of Kent|
As you see Kent was a collection of four main and a handful of smaller islands. The most important fact is that to the East (right hand side) of the map lay Doggerland, which we believe was the lost continent of Atlantis.
The waterway highlighted here was therefore of immense importance as to the north of this map lay the expanded Thames river which joined the Kennett and Avon rivers to flow into the Bristol Channel and the Atlantic Ocean. This would therefore been the main route the Atlanteans took to sail to the Mediterranean.
Coldrum is believed by archaeologists to be a 'Long Barrow' so I investigated it last week to test their theory, as if it was a Long Barrow' it would be used to navigate ships through this area toward either Doggerland/Atlantis or the Atlantic.
When we look at Coldrum on the Mesolithic Map we notice that it lay not on a hill but by the shoreline.
|Entrance showing it's built on a natural mound - the standing stones that was on the shoreline have fallen into what would have been the shoreline/water|
When you look at the entrance you notice that it's on a steep hill - unlike a Long Barrow - this clearly is the mooring point for the site where you would disembark from your boat/ship.

|The Official Noticeboard|
Well according to the first archaeologists that dug the site to bits and destroyed the original shape it was a stone circle and there is still a 1926 plaque on the site to prove their hypothesis - but recently it has turned into a 'Long Barrow', although its not long at all and according to the illustration, is square (So is it a Square Barrow?? if the sites does not fit convention just make it up it seems!)
NB. You see a lot of that kind of rubbish, if you study archaeology.
