Doggerland fascinates me. I want to sit and study the tools. Google UBC/MOA.
The bulk of the holdings don't interest me much except the artifacts from the Pacific Northwest. They let me sit and draw, really an enjoyable experience.

We have had a similar sea level rise, possibly 100m or more, on Canada's west coast. Whole villages had to be uprooted and moved "inland" as the glaciers melted. The First Nations carry a very accurate oral history that is now known to span some 14,500 years at least. They know what happened.

Interesting watch. I have the 'In Our Time - Doggerland' episode permanently bookmarked/downloaded on BBC Sounds

If you are willing to plough through the hundreds of episodes & cherry-pick your interests, there are some fascinating talks/interviews on there & Melvin Bragg is very good at keeping it interesting.

In the last 2 years, if my memory serves, some people examined bathymetric maps of Doggerland. Their express purpose was to pick a most likely site to go camping as a community of people.
The next step was to do some dredging on the spot that they had selected.
BINGO! Up comes all sorts of worked flint stones.
This might have been summarized and reported in ScienceDaily.com.
