Let me say again how much I love-love-love your paleolithic setting!!! (As a former paleoanthropologist I might be a little biased, but still...) Great map! The migrations of humans almost makes the Twilight Lands seem like a paleolithic Beleriand! Oh, and btw, I love the new name for your Substack - "The Scriptorium." I almost went with that very name myself before I settled on "Pageturning."

Thank you, as always! There's more to come next week.

And yes, it does have a bit of that flavor, doesn't it? The idea of Britain + Ireland as a peninsula and the whole Doggerland thing ties in so well. I bet Tolkien was at least partially inspired by all of that.

Thanks! The original name for the Substack was so boring!
