Climatic change is a hot subject and, if you excuse the pun, none can be hotter than the Ice Age. The last 2.6 million years have seen enormous changes in climate. As a result the UK has been thrust from freezing wastes (as ice sheets spread southwards) to hot and humid interglacials.
Such climatic upheavals have shaped the Chiltern Hills. This course will look at the evidence for the Ice Age shaping of the Chilterns, to find information and discover the local story. We will then explore how humans further shaped and used the Chilterns from the Stone Age through to the Iron Age. Individual sessions will include glimpses into the Palaeolithic, Neolithic, Bronze and Iron Age.
