Don't mention Brexit

Europe Cut Off, (450,000 Years Ago)

The Financial Times reports on how the sea broke through the chalk ridge between England and France. Cold water and sunlit uplands. The comments on the article are interesting (if not particularly geological).

England in the background, Calais in the foreground, Europe about to be cut off (or something like that) - the scene 450,000 years ago just before the land bridge is breached.
