    The streets of 'Britain's Atlantis' seen for the first time in centuries: 3D scans reveal the 'drowned' medieval town of Dunwich
    Much more, with 3D images, pictures, maps, and graphs plus a sidebar, at Daily Mail link above; great stuff for those who like this sort of thing. One might even imagine the bells of All Saints, the last major portion of the belltower of which plummeted in 1919, still ringing under the sea.

    I've been reading some Cornwell books (fictitious) about Saxon England, and it mentions Dunwith. What an intriguing mystery that is being solved by technology. Just too cool.

    And then the question becomes "climate change in the 1300s"?? Why, yes, there was a "mini ice age" complete with horrendous storms and damage...

    But that's more of a political thread.

    Still, great post, Wuffy...as usual.
