The other day on television there was a film about how the Egyptians from ancient times went up into Germany to find amber. It was very precious for them and they gave gold in exchange. They went up through the Alps on foot. It was a very informtibve programme. Fascinating. I love amber.
Yes, the film I saw spoke of that coast. In the past there was even more amber there. There was fighting and battles to control the commerce down to the Mediterranean. Archeologists found many skeletons.
