More than 12 speakers will present the results of recent interdisciplinary research (geological, archaeological, palaeobotanical, archaeolozoological and paleontological) carried out in relation to the construction of the Maasvlakte 2 port extension into the North Sea near Rotterdam in the Netherlands. Culminating in an on-site research 20 meters under water in a drowned landscape, the research produced discoveries of hunter / gatherer’s activities from between 8400 and 6400 BC (Late Preboreal to Early Atlantic).
