"The purpose of this paper is to review the current knowledge of the glacial and climate history of Antarctica. Since large-scale glaciations there are not restricted to the Quaternary Era, the paper will first present a brief summary of the pre-Quaternary history, then proceed with a general overview of the Pleistocene record, and finish with more detailed reviews of the Late Quaternary (including the Holocene) glacial and climatic development, with focus on the Antarctic Peninsula and the Ross Sea/Victoria Land regions. The focus of the review is on the terrestrial record of the glacial and climate history of Antarctica, with reference to the marine record as given in excellent reviews by e.g Anderson (1999) and Anderson et al. (2002). "
