Isolated exposures of basalt in a 1000 km2 area in the central northern part of Skåne have long been known to the local people. A volcanic origin for these rocks was finally resolved by geologists during the early 1800s. Until 1965 the volcanic activity was considered to have occurred during the Cenozoic i.e. not older than 65 Ma. In the 1970s attempts were made to directly date the volcanic activity using the K/A radiometric technique. The obtained dates suggested a much older eruption age…
