Marginal Sea

»Sometimes the marginal sea of the Atlantic, sometimes dry tundra. Sometimes sea and sometimes land«

„In this enlightening “Essay on Nature and Landscape”, Kanter closes peculiar knowledge taps and opens our eyes for problems caused by the increasing industrialisation of the former wild sea on the margin of the Atlantic Ocean. Even people who think they know everything about the North Sea will learn something new.“

Anyone looking out over the North Sea from Helgoland would not think that it was once not there. But ten thousand years ago, you could walk from here to England. The sea was 100 meters deeper than today. Olaf Kanter writes about the landscapes that sank. 8400 years ago, a tsunami flooded the settlement of Doggerland, and the water continued to rise. Today it stands 13 meters high above what was once inhabited. The story of a sea and its landscapes.
