Until about 14,000 years ago, Great Britain was joined to Ireland, and as recently as 8,000 years ago it was joined to the con­ti­nent by a strip of low marsh leading to what are now Denmark and the Nether­land­s. Great Britain became an island at the end of the last glacial period when sea levels rose due to the com­bi­na­tion of melting glaciers and the sub­se­quent iso­stat­ic rebound of the crust.
