As the months tick by a few more pieces of the puzzle fall [roughly] into place regarding the reshaping of Northern Europe between the Arabian Horizon and Heinsohn Horizon.
The remarkable geographic changes that occurred during this [roughly] 300 year period transformed the Old World into the New World.
One of these dramatic changes was the transformation of Scotland.
The first step nudged Western Scotland [along with English & Wales] Northwards.
This Northward nudge appears to have damned Doggerland’s natural Northern drainage channel [in the gap between the ancient two piece Scotland] and created a [roughly] circular depression that rapidly began to fill with water.
The expansion of the freshly damned Doggerland lake [aka the North Sea] ultimately created a Southerly overflow channel which is now known as the English Channel.
The 1467 Germanus map of Scotland captures the configuration after this first step.
The second step in the transformation is far more catastrophic.
The Western section of Scotland rotates anti-clockwise by about 90° whilst the Eastern section of Scotland performs an amazing back-flip that arcs through [about] 180°.
The reshaping of Scotland was triggered by Greenland breaking free from Scandinavia.
Greenland appears to have twisted away and rapidly iced over as it travelled North.
The initial deluge of rain and snow associated with the 1st Millennium Minimum [at 654 AD] may explain why the Farm Beneath the Sand [settled centuries before the official arrival of Erik the Red in 986 AD] was found under “1.5m-thick layers of sand and gravel”.
Leaving Scandinavia free to expand and uplift.
The uplift caused part of the Northern Sea to become temporarily landlocked.
This narrative needs to be especially convincing because the description of the Eemian Sea [said to have existed 130,000 to 115,000 years ago] exactly matches the first millennium maps where “Much of northern Europe was under shallow water” and “Scandinavia was an island.
This narrative also needs to be especially convincing because it requires the Danish Straits to drop by about 100 metres whilst the rest of Scandinavia is said to be rebounding upwards.
The expansion of Scandinavia opened up the Baltic Basin.
Paleogene and Neogene marine sediments are however absent in the whole Baltic area except for the southern fringes.
The trapped waters of the Northern Sea either:
a) Filled the newly formed Baltic Basin
b) Drained off via the Danish Straits – a process that created the Norwegian Trench.
Arguably, the Heinsohn Horizon represented a sudden step change reversion to the Carbon-14 regime that existed before the Arabian Horizon.
The Old World geography of Northern Europe is encapsulated in it’s history where, for example, the Roman Empire was physically constrained by the Northern Sea.
Once upon a time cartographers carefully crafted a Semicircular Europe.
This Semicircular Europe persisted even when “Asia became wider”.
The Roman Empire was so impressed with the cartographer’s Semicircular Europe that they only bothered to conquer Semicircular Europe.
This was an Old World where the Varangian Vikings ranged across the Northern Sea from Scandinavia to the Black and Caspian Seas.
The Varangians was the name given by Greeks and East Slavs to Vikings, who between the 9th and 11th centuries ruled the medieval state of Kievan Rus’ and formed the Byzantine Varangian Guard.
Engaging in trade, piracy, and mercenary activities, Varangians roamed the river systems and portages of Gardariki, as the areas north of the Black Sea were known in the Norse sagas.
They controlled the Volga trade route (between the Varangians and the Arabs), connecting the Baltic to the Caspian Sea, and the Dnieper and Dniester trade route (between Varangians and the Greeks) leading to the Black Sea and Constantinople.
An Old World where the Northern Sea connected the East to the West.
The Lithuanian language is a linguistic pandora’s box that the mainstream has buried under several layers of “glottochronological speculations” and “reconstructed proto-language” invention.
Lithuanian, being the “most conservative” Indo-European language, has many Sanskrit affinities.
Tthe “extraordinarily conservative” Lithuanian language retains “many archaic features otherwise found only in ancient languages such as Sanskrit or Ancient Greek.”
Similarly, the “blundering” Academics in Aspic are experiencing a few problems explaining away the “archaic features” found in Lithuanian, Ancient Greek and Sanskrit.
This is hardly surprising because European mitochondrial DNA appears to track back to India.
The key to understanding the initial history of the New World in Northern Europe is the re-population of the old landmasses and the population of the newly emerged European Plane by the surviving Islands of Culture.
Slavs that turned into Poles during the 10th century AD did not crawl out of some hidden abyss, nor did they fall from the sky.
Likewise, they did not hibernate in some unknown location further east from where they suddenly moved to Poland in the 7th/8th century AD without ever telling anybody.

The freshly drained European Plane also attracted settlers from peripheral lands.
Russia is remarkable because it encompasses more than one eighth of Earth’s inhabited land area.
Russia is also remarkable because it only “arose” from the Academic Abyss in the 9th century after the East Slavs “emerged” in the Academic Abyss sometime “between the 3rd and 8th centuries AD”.
Russia is also very curious because its prehistory is confined to the southern margins.
The DNA evidence from Russia is a curious patchwork with concentrated pockets that appear to have expanded [usually from the periphery] to fill the void.
On the other hand, the draining of the trapped Northern Sea left seals stranded in lakes.
Unfortunately, for the mainstream Ice Age narrative, the evidence presented by the extant populations of isolated freshwater seals suggests that the last Ice Age was also just like today in North America and Europe because these stranded seals were not swept from the land locked lakes by advancing [3 or 4 kilometres thick] ice during the last Ice Age.
There is a similar situation in the lakes east of the Baltic Sea where two subspecies of ringed seals are found in freshwater lakes that were supposedly buried under deep ice.
The reshaping of Scandinavia also left behind old settlements where the coins hoards are said to be “odder” the further inland they are found.
When the Roman Empire expanded northwards some coins started to reach Scandinavia.
Their distribution in Scandinavia meets the eye, because they are frequent in Central Scandinavia where there are no other Roman coins.
Their chronological distribution is odd too, because they are sometimes very old, even 3rd century BC.
Their greatest quality, nevertheless, is the fact that they are often very uncommon types – the further inland the odder.
