WARFFUM - On the heels of the ‘discovery’ of the Frisian island Bosch, the same researcher has dug up evidence of another such island. ‘Monks Longeye’ had been mentioned on 15th century maps when it even housed a small chapel. Located between the Lauwers and the Eems river mouths, the sunken island could have been the precursor of the current isle of Rottumeroog. Monks Longeye at the time was estimated to measure about ten square kilometres.
