Caption: Europe, Late Tertiary Period. Artwork of the position of Earth's continents approximately 3 million years ago. This was during the Tertiary period, which extended from 65 to 1.6 million years ago. The continents are slowly moved over the surface of the Earth by currents in the fluid mantle below the crust. Over millions of years, the continents moved into the positions they are in today. Areas that will become America are at upper left, and Africa at bottom.
