  • During the last very cold period in the British Isles, which occurred more than 10,000 radiocarbon years ago, glaciers developed in many mountain areas, permafrost was extensive, frost break-up of rocks was severe (its effects including a pronounced coastal platform and cliff), downslope movement of debris was greatly accelerated, many rivers spread coarse debris over low ground, the vegetation was transformed and the fauna was greatly affected.
