"Doggerland" did really exist until about 8,000 years ago and connected the British Isles to mainland Europe. The novel is based on this and other archeological facts.

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - Floridant -- Mike Meier's novel "The Final Days of Doggerland" won "Best Book" in September 2022 at The Script Awards Los Angeles, an international script and writers competition established in 2016.

The story is largely based on historical facts, such as the disappearance of Doggerland, the first use of spices in food, and the appearance of blue-eyed people in Northern Europe. But of course it is historical fiction, so the author did take some poetic liberties.

In "The Final Days of Doggerland," a group of weary nomads arrive in Northwestern Europe in the remnants of Doggerland and attempt to build a home. But the women and children of the group become captives of the more skilled Bollebarg tribe, led by a ruthless chief, Viggo. One of the captives, Oane, relies on her talent for crafting poisons to survive, while pondering how to reach firm land in the west. But her planned escape may come with a price.

More on The Floridant
Mike Meier also wrote a screenplay with the same name which is available on Filmfreeway. However, the story in the movie screenplay and in the novel differ slightly, he explains. "Since a screenplay is usually limited to 120 pages, I had to simplify the screenplay ending. This book has the ending that I originally intended."

The book is now available on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Final-Days-Doggerland-Neolithic-Survival/dp/B0B8VCDV66
