  • Last Glacial Period, the most recent glacial period (115,000 to 11,700 years ago)
  • Pleistocene, a geologic epoch which includes the world's most recent repeated glaciations (2,580,000 to 11,700 years ago)
  • Quaternary glaciation, the geologic period of the last 2.58 million years
  • Late Cenozoic Ice Age, the geologic period of the last 33.9 million years
  • Paleolithic, an archaeological era (3.3 million to 11,650 years ago)
  • Plio-Pleistocene, a geological pseudo-period
