Noah's ark may have landed once
A team of underwater archaeologists from St Andrews, Dundee and Aberdeen Universities have discovered further evidence of Doggerland, once a fertile land bridge between modern mainland Europe and Britain which disappeared under water as the last ice age melted. Ancient tree stumps, flint used by humans and the fossilised remains of a mammoth have helped form a picture of how the landscape may have looked before the waters came around 8000 years Before Cricket.

A crack team from the underwater investigations unit at the world famous go ahead Carlton Research Institute have been investigating a site at Grange Loan and have discovered artefacts and markings on the floor of what was recently a lake. Most experts agree that this is evidence of a hunter gatherer community of some sophistication. Some contend that this is definitive confirmation that cricket was played on this site before it was inundated. Others disagree, saying that the artefacts are no different from primitive sites of ritual sacrifice and that cricket would have been impossible in such an inhospitable environment.
