Allerød

Allerød A period during the last glacial that marks a prolonged warmer oscillation or interstadial during the general phase of ice retreat in north-western Europe. Radiocarbon dating suggests it lasted from about 12000bp to 10800bp. Pollen records for the north-west European area indicate a cool temperate flora with birch (Betula species) widespread, in marked contrast to the preceding and following, colder, Dryas phases. In Britain the Allerød is not usually distinguished from the Bølling.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content.
