The History of Møn
MØN AFTER THE LAST ICEAGE
about 15.000 years ago
the climate began getting warmer after the last
Iceage and the living conditions in the area that would become Møn slowly improved.
But the ice did not leave without first moulding and creating Møns Klint. Though
the weather was harsh in the later part of the last Iceage both mammoths and
bears lived in the area, remains of these animals have been found on Møn. Now
go on to the Older Stone Age and see what happened next...
