Usually the US can`t match England for antiquities, but this time we can. We have petrified forests, not wet ones and the oldest trees we have are only 5,063 years old.

An anchient oak log and other hard woods can be worth a fortune for its wood alone as its highly prized for wood working. LOTS of money to be made here.

Wait - climate change 4500 years ago? I didn`t think that there were any man-made CO2 emissions then. Can`t have been.

S4S - PM me, I`ve just acquired a job-lot of prehistoric acorns that I can let you have for a good price. These are the real thing, not just some tat the cat dug up. Very reasonable prices, discount for bulk quantities. (some acorns may appear to be not prehistoric, but as part of the aging process the clay layer missed them and they look like ordinary acorns. Don`t be put off though!)

Glad I live in the Midlands, soon to become `By the sea`
Great to see some of these unseen forests of legend become apparent,
and loving the `global warming - worst for 250 years` thing

guess we had some big ass cars back then

I think we`ll see more of this occurring. In Lake Tahoe, California/Nevada there`s tree trunks about 300-400 feet below the surface, which have recently been carbon dated and tested to be around 5,000 years old, apparently back during our last drought. Don`t be surprised to see another massive drought starting around now. Those trees in Tahoe lived for around 400-500 years. I think, at least speaking for the west coast of the U.S., we should get use to lack of rainfall and water.

@ Pianok: Well, that was an animated film, so no. But Ancestry.com says that actual squirrel Scrat was based on is an ancestor of mine on my father`s side. :-)

I would pay good money for a prehistoric acorn. That`s the squirrel equivalent of a 1787 Chateau Lafite.

I think the UK is about to slip into the sea, madduck. Do you own a boat?
