Caroline Wickham-Jones is an archeologist working in the Orkney Archipelago and the Dee River which runs through Aberdeen. She talks about how the people in the past have been affected by sea level rise in Doggerland which used to connect the UK with the rest of Europe a few thousand years ago.

This page is part of Coastal Knowledge, an online exhibition mapping some of the amazing places on the coast of Scotland. It includes pictures, memories, artworks, stories and videos submitted by a variety of people including scientists, artists, coastal dwellers, tourists, and community organisations. We want to share the beauty of the Scottish coast, but also its vital role in the day-to-day lives of people in Scotland- for example, its many industrial roles.
This exhibition is dynamic and ongoing- and we’d love for you to share contributions for it too! To learn more and submit your own coastal knowledge, visit the main page of the exhibition.
