Last Glacial Period
The LAST GLACIAL PERIOD, popularly known as the ICE AGE, was the most recent glacial period , which occurred from c.  110,000 – c. 11,700 years ago. This most recent glacial period is part of a larger pattern of glacial and interglacial periods known as the Quaternary glaciation (c. 2,588,000 years ago to present).
