Where does the name "Doggerland" derive from?
The name comes from dogger, an old Dutch word for fishing boat, especially for catching cod

Wouldn't land rising and falling be more of a geological process than ice melting, assuming the measurements are relative to a stable measurement standard (like the sea level at one point in time)?
In Great Britain, glaciation affected Scotland but not southern England, and the post-glacial rebound of northern Great Britain (up to 10 cm per century) is causing a corresponding downward movement of the southern half of the island (up to 5 cm per century). This will eventually lead to an increased risk of floods in southern England and south-western Ireland.
