If you looked at the sites given, you can now realize that these almost sudden rises or falls in sea levels decimated a lot of the Med, and Atlantic areas, especially interferring with the production of salt!
Surprisingly, it seems that just during the time of the Christos, it is alleged, most recently, that falling levels in the Sea of Galilee, have revealed previously underwater remains of various ports that are now considered to be similtaneous with the times of Jesus! However, other studiesl, like those links mentioned in my prior posts, tend to indicate that the sea level or negative sea level of the Dead Sea, seems to rise by about 70 metres (220 feet) during the same period!
Thus with differing sciences we seem to have a dichotomy?
By the way, have you ever considered just how important salt as a commodity, and as a necessary unit of civilization, really was?
