The History of Møn

Møn after the last Iceage

For 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...
