The landscape of the Netherlands has been changing constantly since the end of the last ice age, some 11,700 years ago. Where we walk today was once a polar desert, a river delta or a shallow sea. The end of the last ice age marked the beginning of a new geological period - the Holocene, the relatively warm geological epoch in which we are still living today. The maps in this publication show the geographical situation for thirteen different points in time since the last ice age. These maps are supplemented by archaeological and historical information.
