Abstract
    Anthony et al. (2010) published a recent paper in Marine Geology on the origin and chronology of an inland dune for which they presented an explanation for the regional pattern of mid- to late Holocene coastal development. This explanation contradicts other data collected from this coastal area. It is moreover in contrast to our current understanding of Holocene coastal evolution of the Southern North Sea. The data used by Anthony et al. (2010) includes a number of inconsistencies that led the authors to incorrect conclusions. This discussion reports on our critical evaluation of data and reasoning in Antony et al. (2010). We propose an alternative model of coastal evolution which is in line with the current knowledge about mid- to late Holocene coastal evolution.
