Seller: emilbal-y0jmlc4z (378) 100%, Location: Clacton-on-Sea, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 174141315923 Here is a great Upper Paleolithic/Mesolithic Portable Quartz Venus Figurine. This quartz venus has great form and is similar to wilczyce venus figurines discovered in Poland, i have discovered various venus figurines with this form in various materials yet quartz is much rarer maybe this is due to the hardness of the material itself and crystal is known to crack and fracture. This great example was discovered within deep north seabed dredge material that was dredged from an area that forms the southern north sea which was once dry land now known as doggerland. Doggerland was a vast plain larger than the uk and was connected to europe via a landbridge it was also populated by early human species and mesolithic hunter gatherers. Sadly doggerland was slowly submerged due to climate change at the end of the last ice age a mega tsunami also struck here which would have devastated the land which now makes up the north seabed. Doggerland is now regarded as Britain's Atlantis with many more discoverys to be made.
