Amersfoot interstadial
CATEGORY: chronology
DEFINITION: An interstadial of the Weichselian stage which has radiocarbon dates between 68,000-65,000 bp, but it is possibly earlier.
Bolling interstadial
CATEGORY: chronology
DEFINITION: An Interstadial of the Weischselian cold stage, dated to between 13,000-12,000 bp.
Brørup interstadial.
CATEGORY: chronology
DEFINITION: An interstadial of the Weichselian cold period, radiocarbon dated to between 63,000 and 61,000 bp, but it may be earlier.
Denekamp Interstadial
CATEGORY: chronology
DEFINITION: A warm period during the Middle pleniglacial phase of the last (Weichselian) glaciation (cold stage) in Europe. It is dated to around 28,000 BC (30,000 bp).
Hengelo interstadial
CATEGORY: chronology
DEFINITION: A Continental Middle Pleniglacial interstadial of the Weichselian cold stage, starting around 39,000 BP. It occurred during the final glaciation between the Moershooft and Denekamp interstadials.
Loch Lomond stadial
SYNONYMS OR RELATED TERMS: Younger Dryas
CATEGORY: chronology
DEFINITION: A widespread but short interval of renewed glacial activity and cold climatic conditions in the British Isles. This event occurred about 11,000 years ago, some 2,000 years before the dissipation of the ice sheet. It is a stadial of the Devensian cold stage during which small glaciers were formed in the high mountains of Wales and the Lake District and an icecap was formed over the highlands of Scotland. The Loch Lomond stadial may be correlated with Godwin's Pollen Zone III and the Younger Dryas (Scandinavia).
Moershoofd interstadial
CATEGORY: chronology
DEFINITION: An Interstadial of the Weichselian cold stage. It is dated to c 50,000-43,000 bp.
Odderade interstadial
CATEGORY: chronology
DEFINITION: An Interstadial of the Weichselian cold stage, dated by radiocarbon to c 58,000 bp, but it may be earlier. The beginning of the Weichsel has been placed at about 70,000 years ago.
Windermere interstadial
CATEGORY: chronology
DEFINITION: Interstadial of the Devensian cold stage which occurred c 13,000-11,000 bp. It consisted of a rapid temperature rise to an initial thermal maximum, followed by a slight temperature decline at 12,000 bp. It stabilized until 11,000 bp, when it fell sharply at the start of the Loch Lomond Stadial. The Windermere interstadial may be correlated with Godwin's Pollen Zone II.
homostadial
CATEGORY: culture
DEFINITION: Archaeological cultures that represent similar levels or technological advance with other cultures, regardless of a difference derived in absolute dating methods. This is the principle behind the Three Age System.
interstadial
CATEGORY: chronology
DEFINITION: A brief period of milder climate within a longer, cooler glacial period (between two cold periods during a major glaciation). Although it is similar to an interglacial period, it is too cold or too short to allow for growth of vegetation. Examples are the Devensian, Weichselian, and Wisconsin.
stadial
SYNONYMS OR RELATED TERMS: stadia
CATEGORY: chronology
DEFINITION: A period during glaciation when the temperature was at its lowest and ice sheets and glaciers most extensive. They are separated by warmer interstadial periods. These cold episodes are of relatively short duration.
