Ice age fossils

2.58 - 0 million years old

The current ice age, the Pliocene-Quaternary glaciation, started about 2.58 million years ago. Since then, the world has seen cycles of glaciation with ice sheets advancing and retreating on 40,000- and 100,000-year time scales called glacials (glacial advance) and interglacials (glacial retreat). The earth is currently in an interglacial, and the last glacial period ended about 10,000 years ago. All that remains of the continental ice sheets are the Greenland, Antarctic ice sheets and smaller glaciers such as on Baffin Island. In this section of our website we sell fossils from the ice age.
