MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - Aug. 30, 2022 - PRLog -- Most people will draw a blank when they hear "Doggerland." Yes, that land did exist until about 8,000 years ago and connected the British Isles to mainland Europe (but there are different theories when exactly and how fast it disappeared).

In early December 2020, a scientific article about the first use of spices caught the attention of author and screenplay author Mike Meier. According to the article, garlic mustard was the first spice used in Northern Europe. Then he found that there was a lot more going on at the time, such as the disappearance of Doggerland.

He explains, "It was probably because I've always felt a close connection with Northern Europe that the story flowed naturally from my fingers to my keyboard. My late father was born near one of the sites where evidence of early spice use was found (Viking territory, by the way). And I've been familiar with ancient Norse mythology since childhood. I based the Bollebargs' beliefs on such Norse myths."

In "The Final Days of Doggerland," a group of weary nomads arrive in Northwestern Europe in the remnants of Doggerland and attempt to build a home. But the women and children of the group become captives of the more skilled Bollebarg tribe, led by a ruthless chief, Viggo. One of the captives, Oane, relies on her talent for crafting poisons to survive, while pondering how to reach firm land in the west. But her planned escape may come with a price.

The book is now available on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Final-Days-Doggerland-Neolithic-Su...
