When the Sea Flooded Britain, by Steve Mitchell (2005)

Full title: ‘When the Sea Flooded Britain – A Catastrophic Late Holocene Isostatic Interlude along the Eastern Seaboard of England and Scotland’

Abstract: This article is a preliminary assessment of the nature and extent of the evidence for relative sea-level changes in the period from around AD 400 until AD 1700. It will seek to show that much of the eastern and southern coast of Britain was under the sea by up to 30 metres or more in the late Roman/early medieval period. This resulted in a landscape that was dramatically different from that today, which has profound implications for our understanding of British early medieval history.

This article is from Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2005.
