Why do they say the sea was higher? Overall, sea level was about 100m lower at that time than now? I know some area have experienced uplifts since the weight of the ice age glaciers was lifted, but I wouldn't expect land to rise enough to overcome 100 meters of rising oceans in 10000 years. As I understand it, vast areas of northern Europe were above water at that time but are now drowned.

I'm not sure.

During the ice age, the sea level was for sure lower, but as the ice melted it might have been deposited in the ground and slowly seeped into the ocean, so it's possible that the fjords and other inland waterways were higher.
