Sea levels have risen hundreds of feet since the last ice age

Look where the vast majority of people are living now, along the coast lines. It would seem logical that people over 10,000 years ago or maybe much longer also lived along the sea shores. As the water levels rose the ancient ports and shore areas flooded, the people retreated to higher ground, leaving any evidence of their developments under water. Archaeologists have mainly been limited to digs that are above water level, so I believe the really ancient history has long been under sea level. There is a huge missing time gap in human history that we know very little or anything about. Whole civilizations could have lived and developed only to be lost under the sea and left very little trace evidence.
