Many aspects of the story are based on archeological facts, such as the migration of the Yamnaya people, the disappearance of Doggerland, the use of garlic mustard to spice food, and the arrival of blue-eyed people in Northern Europe.

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - eTradeWire -- 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.

When author Mike Meier began researching his third book, a Neolithic novel set in Doggerland, the land that once connected Northern Europe to what is now England, he was fascinated to discover several enlightening archeological facts, such as the migration of the Yamnaya people, the use of spices in food, and a land sinking into the sea. Meier's historic tale begins during the time of the early westward migrations from the Pontic steppe between the Southern Bug, Dniester and Ural rivers. "I have tried to create a world as it was 6,000 ago in Northern Europe," Meier notes. "A time where one's only goal was to survive."
