50.000 years ago, just a snip of time and in geological term's only just happened England were I am was Savannah with african lion's, wilder beast,
giraffe, hippo's, hyena's, indeed all the fauna of the African Savannah living and roaming the land.
Then you have the little ice age, like the ice age which supposedly ended about 10 to 12 k years ago but much more recent and not as severe.
Glaciers expanded, the viking colony's on the formerly habitable and thriving Greenland were crop's had been grown died off painfully and slowly as
the last generation were stunted short and sickly then the glaciers rolled over there stone church's and building's grinding them to the earth leaving
barely a trace of what had once been just a few hundred years earlier, the Canal's of Venice froze solid.
Indeed some make a valid claim that we are actually still coming out of this mini ice age, back in the 1850's the Thames river would and had frozen
solid every single year for hundred's of year's and they used to hold a winter fair there every years smack bang in the middle of the river on the ice
but since that time the Thames has seldom frozen and never enough to hold a winter fair.
Makes you wonder if they had proper snow in the Sahara at that time.
Great and thought provoking images.
Go back about 4 million years and the Sahara was river's, grassland's and african forest.
