The lecture is an attempt to show the way in which research upon the Quaternary Period in Britain is being affected by the application to it of radiocarbon dating. Mild interstadial periods during the last glaciation can be distinguished, set in sequence and related to similar European interstadials. It is shown that a brief climatic oscillation occurs widely in the Late-glacial transition from Full-glacial to Post-glacial time, and that the vegetational changes registered in pollen zonations… Expand
