Port of Rotterdam to Host International Symposium
The Port of Rotterdam will host the 20 meters under water! international symposium on the 5th and 6th of March 2015.
The Symposium presents the results of recent interdisciplinary research (geological, archaeological, palaeobotanical, archaeozoological 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 on-site research 20 meters under water in a drowned landscape, the research produced discoveries of hunter/gatherer’s activities from between 8,400 and 6,400 BC (Late Preboreal to Early Atlantic).
