Cambridge University's new findings now support my hypothesis

by Robert John Langdon

Mark Knight and the University of Cambridge have been excavating a site near 'Flag Fen' called Must Farm.
Must Farm Boat

Must farm boat - "just one of thousands in this area" Mike Knight 

Mark has found a number of Bronze Age boats that he claims 'to be on a slope to the North Sea and the event we will re-explore British prehistory'. For he has found that Britain not only did not have the 'isolated' hunter-gatherer tribes our history books contain, but they lived in Boats communicating and trading with the continent.

Here is the Video from the BBC series 'Digging for Britain' - with a few comments/corrections of my own!

In 2010 I published the first part of my trilogy 'The Stonehenge Enigma' in which I criticised the current archaeological story of Britain as 'myth and fanciful' as they talk about 'hunter/gatherers' of British Prehistory. The book shows that there was no such thing as a 'hunter-gatherer' in Britain as it was flooded after the last ice age, and the population lived on boats and fished for a living, with the occasional visit to land sites (we now call henges and iron age forts) that lay on the shorelines of this flooded landscape.

The archaeologists called it 'pseudo-science' and 'fantasy' and refused to review the book in their archaic magazines and periodicals. However, as you see from this site and its blogs, this idea has now become 'mainstream' and this video confirms this 'aquatic' civilisation able to build a 'fishery' over ten kilometres in length.

To understand how sophisticated this 'open pen' type of fish is here is what we do today in the largest open pen fisheries' country in the world Canada:

Canada has been using the net pen system since the 1970s. Net pen, or cage, technology started to be used seriously in Canada in the early 1980s in New Brunswick when joint government /private projects introduced cage technology from Norway. Cage culture started seriously in B.C. in the late 1980s. 

Smaller scale cage culture developed in freshwaters as well, including Georgian Bay, Ontario and Lake Diefenbaker, Sask. and B.C. The oldest operating cage farm in Canada is actually in Georgian Bay. The conventional net-pen is an open mesh net that is suspended within a framework constructed of steel, wood or plastic, that floats at the surface and held in place by down-haul weights. 

The arrangement of the cages (net pens) varies considerably. On Canada's east coast typical cages are circular and constructed of high density poly pipe (HDPE). The cages are 60m to 150m in circumference and moored individually within a grid system. On the west coast the cages are often steel with 8 to 24 cages in a group, half on each side of a main walkway. 

The cages are typically 15m to 30m across and 15m to 30m deep. Natural currents bring fresh, oxygenated water to the net pens and carry away soluble waste. The solid waste fecal material and uneaten feed settle to the ocean bottom near the cage site. Note that the amount of uneaten feed in negligible because the farmers cannot afford to waste feed, which is typically about 60% of their production cost. 

In the video Mark tells us that thousands of fish traps were used over this ten kilometre stretch - so do the maths! If each trap caught just one fish, a day that's 365,000 fish an annum. This is a commercial fish farm equivalent to any modern-day fish company of today.

So we are talking about massive trading all over the continent - and confirms that this civilisation was NOT hunter/gatherers but lived on boats, yet the archaeologists have not understood even scratched the surface of this civilisation - for by 1500 BC this society was in massive decline as we see from the Roman invasion, for these boat's people and these techniques were lost by the time Julius Caesar ventured into Britain. Which gives us an indication of how great this original civilisation was some two thousand years before the boats of Must farm.



    1. Its a very interesting article which would explain the ice age cycles that led to a hot forest climate in Britain - more like the Amazon than the Britain we know today, through global warming.

      "During the early Holocene Epoch, about 10,000 years ago, the carbon dioxide exhalations continued, yet gas levels stabilized in the atmosphere, according to the new study. This suggests that something starting sucking up the gas, perhaps re-growing forests or expanding peat bogs on land, the researchers said."

      The 'Earth Science' seems to balance our climate between Arctic snow and tropical forests - with the forest reversing the carbon levels.


    2. Hi Rob
      I've been going over some of the evidence you have brought forward and thought id share some ideas. I just re read the odyssey and just started on the the iliad, with the atlantic setting in mind, and im wondering if the language pre flood was, possibly (germanic)? europe wide and post flood the other european languages started arriving, it makes sense and fits the story. the names and places from the book all seem to me to have endings of either frence, german, portuguese/spanish (british)? i dont know if this is something to do with the translation of the book, or is the author giving us a clue to characters homelands? probably abit of both.
      As for odysseus living in cadiz i noticed an idealic hill top village in southern portugal, close to sea and on a river, called Odeceixe, and you cant help but wonder if theres a link, and im finding many other strange connections it seems to be that the memory of these events from a common language morphed into many languages and confuses the situation even more.
      my second point iv been thinking about is the fact that these guys had been to the arctic circle and beyond and i really feel this was a major major discovery in humanity, i feel like anywhere else on the planet you could watch the sky for 3000 years and not learn anything new, but inside the arctic circle in 1 year you could unlock the secrets of the universe, i think this in turn unlocked everything mapping, navigation, mathmatics, etc etc. This is the reason why atlantis was special, it also throws up the question did metal working originate in the north sea area also and how long ago?

    3. The flood would be dated about 4200BCE - although Doggerland/Atlantis started to disappear some 2000 years earlier. The original language of the 'Mesolithic Period' they call indo-european language and it is were Germanic, Celtic, French Spanish all spin from - a good tree is found at:

      As for metals in the past another archaeological myth is Bronze - you get copper nearly everywhere, but to make bronze you need either arsenic or tin. Now arsenic vapour will kill you - so if you mad you can make bronze (for a very short while!) But, if you're sane you use Tin - but there is only two places in the ancient world you can find tin - Germany and Cornwall, so did people travel to Cornwall to buy tin then take it back to the middle east to make Bronze (I don't think so!!) No my friend Bronze was a substance invented by the Atlanteans and shared with the Middle East on their travels at about 6th millennium BCE.



    Hi Rob
    This article is interesting it fits history much better then the old model, also i read one the other day that had Neanderthals using boats to get to the mediterranian islands 170 000 years ago. very interesting

  3. Yes my friend, scientists are slowly coming around to our thinking of the past.

    I personally do not believe that Neanderthals liked water much - like homo erectus or common apes. Hence the limited spread of Neanderthals throughout the world, within their time period 'out of Africa' - compared to erectus.. The first real sea voyage which were undertaken by boat (excluding people taking rides on floating logs etc over small short distances) would have started about 45,000 BC at the earliest - this is the same point as Cro-Magnons were born and as a hybrid would be more suitable to water as we are today.

    Interestingly, this adoption to water and swimming can be seen in the Olympics, were african or south american counties to not compete well (if at all!!) with other continents although there country is full of water.


  4. Hi Rob
    I know from my experience that Cats don't like water! Do you think that they (the cats) may have played apart in covering up our aquatic past?? The Egyptians worshipped Cats, probably for good reason.
