It seems likely that the hunter-gather societies of Britain, far from being isolated, are part of extensive social networks that trade or exchange exotic foodstuffs across much of Europe.
Trapped between this land bridge and the ice sheet to the north, the Irish Sea is filled by melt water that forms a vast lake.
The DNA evidence corroborates the archaeological evidence, demonstrating a tangible link with the Continent that appears to be severed when Britain becomes an island over the course of the next millennium.
Almost the last vestiges of the Dogger Hills are submerged beneath the rising waters of the North Sea.
(Additional information by Edward Dawson, and from the Cambridge Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, Dr Chantal Conneller at the University of Manchester, Professor Nicky Milner at York University, and the Vale of Pickering Research Trust, and from External Links: Stonehenge, and Science.) The most recent ice age is now fast fading in its intensity.
As the ice recedes northwards, anatomically modern human hunter-gatherers reach Britain.
Modern humans entered the British Isles around 30,000 years ago, although the ice eventually forced them out during a fresh advance.
The most recent (and current) recolonisation occurred from about 12,000 BC onwards, a little over five thousand years before the last vestiges of the land bridge were submerged beneath the newly formed North Sea (the English Channel was formed much earlier).
Professor David Tappin, marine geologist for the British Geological Survey, points to a geological scar on the ocean floor as proof that an earthquake strikes the region, sending a two-hundred mile-long section of sediment (the size of Iceland) crashing down onto the sea floor.
Now known as the Storegga Slide, the slide displaces millions of tons of sea water to create a massive tsunami that strikes Iceland, Greenland, North America, and also Britain's eastern coastline as far south as the Humber. The Lake Agassiz flood from an ice dam in North America finishes off Doggerland, sweeping over it as sea levels are subjected to a short but intense period of rapid rising.
Their arrival may be as much as the eighth such wave of settlement over the course of 700,000 years, but the first to last any appreciable time.
By this date Aborigines have been in Australia for at least 55,000 years, greatly outlasting the human occupation of the British Isles. Gough's Cave in Cheddar Gorge, Somerset, is one such site for these people.
At this time, the land bridge is finally submerged beneath the salt water of the Atlantic.
