That's what I meant.  I wasn't clear.  I think DNA evidence being thrown out will be a thing of the past.

I agree with you.  Another predicted theoretical device that analyses DNA in the air in a room where a crime has been committed seems to be close..

Saw it earlier. Makes sense. I've seen the same sort of thing for the chain of islands between Asia and North America. Islands popping up during the Ice Age and then gradually sinking below the waves as the sea level rose and the ice melted.

It's wonderful to actually be able to see my country as it was so many thousands of years ago.

Yes, it explains how humans got there. There's a tendency to think that as sea levels are now, that's how they've always been.

Britain is currently separated from continental Europe by the North Sea and the English Channel. Both are relatively recent and we know that at the end of the last Ice Age, people could not only walk across Doggerland from continental Europe, but also made their homes there. It disappeared under rising sea levels about 8000 years ago.

There's an informative map here:
