CLUE: Britain became an island less than 10,000 years ago, as warming weather & melting ice filled in this sea
ANSWER: North Sea
About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Thursday, 2 November 2023
Approximately 10,000 years ago, Britain’s connection to mainland Europe was severed due to the rise in sea levels caused by melting glaciers. Previously, an area known as “Doggerland” bridged modern-day Britain to the European continent, facilitating the movement of early humans and animals between these regions.
As the glaciers melted, vast volumes of water surged into the North Sea basin. Eventually, the rising waters overflowed the Weald-Artois chalk range, a natural barrier that had previously contained the waters. The rapid influx of water, potentially exacerbated by the discharge from glacial lakes, gradually eroded this land connection.
By 8,000 years ago, the formation of the English Channel was complete, transforming Britain into an isolated island.

Final Jeopardy Video – Thursday, 2 November 2023
Watch all the videos from today’s Jeopardy episode below, including highlights, behind the scenes outtakes and full episodes.
Final Jeopardy is the final round of the popular American television game show Jeopardy!, in which participants test their knowledge in numerous areas by answering questions. In Final Jeopardy, participants are given a single clue and must wager a percentage of their existing earnings based on their confidence in their ability to successfully respond.
Each contestant surreptitiously writes down their wager during the commercial break. The Final Jeopardy clue is presented when the programme resumes, and participants have 30 seconds to write down their solution in the form of a question (e.g., “What is…?”). When the timer runs out, the host, reveals each contestant’s response and wager in ascending order of their pre-Final Jeopardy scores. The scores of contestants are adjusted based on whether their response is correct or incorrect, as well as the amount wagered. At the end of the round, the contestant with the highest score is proclaimed the winner.
