Palaeogeographic models of North West Europe from 11,000 to 7,000 BP at 500 year intervals. The land bridge between England & the Continent explains why hunter-gatherers entered Britain via present day Norfolk & Lincolnshire. By 8,000 BP that route was inundated & a Channel approach was the shortest maritime path.
