Caption: European glaciation. Artwork showing the maximum extent of the ice sheets and glaciers at the peak of the last Ice Age, between 20,000 and 18,000 years ago. Areas of land and sea covered by the ice include parts of the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea and Baltic Sea, Greenland, Iceland, the British Isles, Scandinavia, and parts of Northern Europe. The mountain ranges of the Alps are also covered in ice. This peak glaciation ended around 10,000 years ago, with the current period being an interglacial where the ice caps have retreated to the polar regions.
