Deposit Modelling and Archaeology, Guidance for Mapping Buried Deposits, published by Historic England on 31 January 2020, suggests that ‘Pleistocene’ refers to: ‘The oldest part of the Quaternary period, preceding the Holocene and extending back to around 2.6 million years ago. It is characterised by major alternating warm and cold stages defined respectively as interglacials and glacials.’
Green infrastructure and open environments: London’s foundations: protecting the geodiversity of the capital, Supplementary Planning Guidance, published by the Mayor of London in March 2012, defines Pleistocene as: ‘A geological epoch [1.8Ma–11.5 Ka] preceded by the Pliocene and followed by the Holocene. Part of the Cenozoic Era and Quaternary Sub-Era.’
