What was Great Britain like during the Ice ages?

The last Ice Age in Britain took place around 10,000 years ago and lasted for some 80,000 years. During this period, one third of the world was covered in ice with much of Great Britain hidden under vast glaciers.

The glaciers and ice sheets transported huge amounts of debris, ranging from huge boulders to fine rock particles, which helped to form much of the landscape seen around us today.

As the ice melted, the glaciers eventually dumped their rock debris, known as till or boulder clay, which formed many our smaller scale features of mounds and ridges, called moraines.

Other evidence of glacial deposition includes erratics, rocks transported hundreds of kilometres by ice sheets and deposited in different geological areas. The bumps of hollows of Salthouse Heath and Cromer Ridge hold many clues to Norfolk's ice-covered past.

"It's a bit like a detective story, piecing together the evidence," said geologist Peter Lambley.

"We're looking for something that shouldn't be here, like a granite erratic. It will have got here in the ice, travelling four or five hundred miles from across the North Sea.

"It seems [Cromer Ridge] to have been the front line of the ice sheet for some time. For some reason the glaciers ground to a halt here. All the material that was dredged up from the North Sea was being poured out of the glaciers to form a ridge.

"Out to sea you'd have seen a huge ice sheet. Right out to the horizon would have been white, glistening glaciers around 1000ft thick," he added.

It was because Norfolk was on the edge of the glacier, that it has such a unique landscape, unavailable anywhere else in East Anglia. The clay soil, found in many parts of the region, is also thanks to the Ice Age, providing some of the best land for crops and wildlife in Europe.

The Ice Age didn't just leave an inspirational countryside in its wake, but also clues to the creatures that roamed the region all those thousands of years ago. The Norfolk coast is a haven for fossil hunters. In the cliffs at West Runton, you can find evidence of the warmer periods of the Ice-Ages preserved.

"We have molluscs and bits of wood. It's incredibly fossil rich, a complete environment preserved. The whole bed is about 650 to 750,000 years old, that's before the Ice Ages. The fossils you get here are so well preserved, considering their age," said Nigel. "This is a site of special scientific interest. We've found evidence of rhinos, hyenas and, of course, we also found the West Runton elephant here. Now that was a massive individual, about 5m high at the shoulder," he added. Mammoths died out some 10,000 years ago, probably due to the changing climate and the increasingly successful hunting techniques of modern humans. Part of the mammoth, found in West Runton, can now be view at the Norwich Castle Museum.

During the ice age countries like the Britain, France, Spain and Germany were very cold. At the northern and southern part of the earth the sheets of ice were much colder than they are today. Nobody knows why the ice age started, or why it stopped after 25,000 years. All we know is that it came and went very slowly. So that is the reason why the people that lived at the time didn't realize that it was getting colder and colder, nor did they know that they were becoming the ice age hunters. Most of the ice age hunters lived in the western, central part of Europe.

Because of all the ice the land was shaped much, much differently. The land looked bare because it was too cold for beech and oak trees to grow. There would be an few fir trees here and there. No grass grew, just shrubs, bushes, and moss grass. In the northern parts of North America, Europe, and Asia there is still tundra.

The animals were different from today too. Back then there were woolly mammoth, woolly rhinos, cave bears, bison, wolves, horses, and herds of reindeer like modern day reindeer. Woolly mammoth, cave bear, and woolly rhino are now extinct. How do we know that they existed? Well the ice age people painted pictures of these animals on the sides of their caves, and the skeletons of the animals have been found in caves.There are cuts from the hunters' knives in the bones and the knives were sitting beside them.
