more of the marshes

Part of a submerged forest dating back to about 6,000 years ago! Some of it is exposed on the Thames foreshore at Rainham Marshes. The forest, consisting of fallen tree trunks and roots, is of Neolithic age, a time when sea level was much lower.

Thanks Christa1004, I did a little mudlarking with a friend and I discovered there are quite a lot of remnants of ancient forests... fascinating...
