S3E26 – Yorkshire’s Atlantis

Yorkshire’s Atlantis

“Get in the sea” has been in common parlance since 2015 but it is by no means a modern concept. Towns, cities and fabled islands have been doing just that for thousands of years. Alasdair takes us on a deep dive (PUN) into Yorkshire’s own submerged towns, one of which was populated exclusively by pirates.

Well, they must have had non-pirates to do the normal stuff like take the bins out, but you get the idea.

The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
