I mean, subby is right to make the exception because that is right where my mind went and the story I expected to see...

Get on the A44 and you can get off next to Jeremy Clarkson's farm.

Doggerland is one of my favorite historical... things. And it probably flooded both over a long period and a series of cataclysms, which makes me wonder what it was like for the people experiencing it. Over the course of a few generations, what was land was suddenly ocean- and also, there was a high point in Doggerland which may have been an island for a generation or two- were people living there, watching the water encroach on them? Nobody knows!

Note: underneath one of the images in the article there is a caption mentioning "De Zandmotor beach". It's one of my Northerly neighbour's many interesting feats of water engineering: https://en.wikipedia.org​/wiki/Sand_eng​ine

That was one of several events. The Storegga Slide was the "last straw", but Doggerland had been nothing but low-lying islands for some time at that point.

And I should add, there's some evidence that the water from Storegga receded, and that people continued to live in the region after that.

I find it interesting how much has changed over the last 20,000 years since the last glacial maximum. It's not really that much time.

You're thinking of the Isle of Dogs. Which also has nothing to do with dogs, though there should at least be some dogs living there.
