1500BC - Borth Beach

By urdygurdy  
Not the finest image but a fascinating storey behind these tree stumps on the beach.

An ancient submerged forest is visible at low tide along the beach at Borth on the west wales coast, where stumps of oak, pine, birch, willow and hazel (preserved by the acid anaerobic conditions in the peat) can be seen. Radiocarbon dating suggests these trees died about 1500 BC. This submerged forest is also associated with the legend of Cantre'r Gwaelod.
