Praise

“A magical, mesmerising book that makes you feel giddy at the thought of the deep gulf of history hidden just beneath your feet.” —The Scotsman             
 
“Majestic. . . . Captivating. . . .  Blackburn’s book on the past is above all a response to the urgent problems of the present.” —The Times Literary Supplement

“This is an extraordinary book about time, absence, and perception. . . . Blackburn shows us that, in a time of flux and friction, the gathering of uncertainties can bring greater awareness and a sense of wholeness.” The Wall Street Journal
 
“Gripping. . . . Unconventional. . . . A meditation on the Mesolithic and what people are truly looking for when they turn to the past.” —The Economist

“Blackburn has a talent for envisioning bygone worlds. . . . The book is less about Doggerland itself than about . . . the tantalizing objects, be they fossils or faxes, that can bridge the living to the dead.” —The New York Times Book Review
