Shortly after her husband's death, Julia Blackburn became fascinated with Doggerland, the vast, once-populated stretch of land that connected Great Britain to continental Europe thousands of years ago but is now under the North Sea. She felt driven to explore the lives of the people who lived there as revealed through artifacts and the fossil record. In Time Song, she brings us along on her journey, introducing us to the paleontologists, archaeologists, fishermen, and fellow Doggerland enthusiasts she meets along the way. What emerges is a lyrical exploration - part travelogue and part history - and a profound meditation on time and the immensity of the past.
