Abstract

The evidence for glacial and periglacial activity has been studied for over 120 years and it is possible to identify 3 phases of development in this area of research. First, a pioneer phase, second, a mapping phase, and, third, an advanced phase characterised by detailed understanding of the geochronology of glacial sequences using radiometric dating alongside detailed sedimentological and stratigraphical analyses. It is now clear from radiometric dating programmes that the Mediterranean region have been glaciated during multiple glacial cycles. The most extensive phases of glaciation appear to have occurred during the Middle Pleistocene
