The dramatic landscape of Jersey, its coastline and inland landscape of valleys and fields, has been shaped by long time processes of climate change. The island has an exceptional geological record for the Ice Age documenting over a quarter of a million years of successive changes in the planet’s climate, rising and falling sea levels as well as evidence for the humans and animals which were able to survive in northern Europe during this time.
