Abstract [en]

We present a collation of 975 published dates relevant to the timing of build-up and retreat of ice over the British Isles during the most recent glacial stage. The spatial distribution of dates is essential to interpreting the evolution of the ice sheet over time and space. For this reason the dates are presented as a map showing the spatial distribution across the UK and Ireland. Full documentation for each date, attributed to its source publication and detailing geographic location, the material dated, its stratigraphic position or setting, the dating technique, the dating result, errors and calibration, and comments pertinent to its interpretation, are included in the accompanying table. It is anticipated that this dataset will be a useful resource for Quaternary research in the UK and Ireland and is therefore available to download as a shapefile and/or PDF file. The map is presented at a scale of 1:2,700,000, designed to be printed at A2 size.
