The problem of a late Quaternary landbridge between Britain and Ireland

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)

Abstract

The question of whether a possible landbridge (s) existed between Britain and Ireland during Devensian (Midlandian) Late-glacial and Holocene time is analysed in the light of new geological and related environmental information. If any landbridge existed, it could only have operated between the north of Ireland and South West Scotland as a discontinuous linkage, formed by temporary islands at levels>46 m O.D. The timing of its operation, if at all, is placed at 11,400 to 10,200 200 BP.
