Not that excavations in doggerland wouldn't be fascinating but, I would really love to see some of the sites in Asia, specifically around what is now Coastal India and China.

I think world history may be completely rewritten once we have the technology for archaeological excavations in areas that were submerged after the Ice Age

For sure. According to my research and powers of deductive logic, human civilization could reach back a million years.

Archaeologists in the new study wanted to see what effect rising sea levels might have on archaeological and historical sites. For example, in 1999, the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse was relocated about 2,900 feet (885 m) to protect it from the encroaching sea.

Not the best example on a migrating barrier island, just sayin'

I am counting on sea level rise to really drain the swamp on the Potomac. Well, to wash it away, at least.

From marsh lands and mire, Washington came, and to marsh and mire it mush return its muck for secular recycling.

/Sitting pretty at over 800 feet elevation on Parliament Hill. Queen Victoria builded better than she knew. Ironically, London is tomorrow's toast. God save the Queen!

Somebody call me when the rich and famous start unloading their coastal real estate.
