The village under the sea off the
Isle of Wight was found by chance

Fight on to save Stone Age Atlantis 
By Eleanor Williams
BBC News, Hampshire 

A race against time is under way to try to save a Stone Age settlement found buried at the bottom
of the sea in the Solent.

Eight thousand years ago the area would have been dry land, a valley and woodland criss-crossed
by rivers.

A swamped prehistoric forest was identified off the northern Isle of Wight coast in the 1980s, but
Bouldnor Cliff's buried Stone Age village was only found - by chance - a few years ago.

Divers taking part in a routine survey spotted a lobster cleaning out its burrow on the seabed and
to their surprise the animal was throwing out dozens of pieces of worked flint.
