An incredible amount of work has been done in recent years to map the topography of Doggerland, which included navigable rivers as well as a vast lake area known as the Outer Silver Pit. This is thought to have been the site of a thriving Mesolithic community responsible for the establishment of outlying settlements on the British mainland around 10,000 years ago. In addition to this, there is tantalizing evidence that during its final phase of occupation, the Doggerland population erected standing stones and established human burial sites. These were recorded during the geophysical modeling of data obtained from oil and gas companies, and confirmed by direct evidence from material recovered from the seafloor.
