No, not New Zealand!
Tolkein set his fictional Middle Earth in the area we now call Northern Europe, in a land now long vanished, but once filled with different races and cultures, gigantic pachyderms, wolves, bears and saber-toothed monsters. Incredibly, such a place did exist, it is known as Doggerland, and like Atlantis, sank beneath the waves in a catastrophe of staggering proportions.
I’m always on the lookout for great documentaries, but all too often they end up being either a pot boiler, a sermon on “Climate Change”, a politically slanted narrative, or lead down the speculative “Aliens did it” path.
The following presentation, however, ticked all the boxes for me. Hope it does for you guys too. And of course if you enjoyed it, go to YT and give it a “thumbs up” and subscribe for more. MH.
