Gift of the Glaciers - How the Ice Ages Shaped Europe

The ice shield was several kilometers thick pushing a huge wall of rubble from Scandinavia towards Central Europe. The debris became Denmark and Northern Germany. Between Calais and Dover, the walls of a huge meltwater lake broke separating France and Great Britain. This film by Heiko De Groot shows that Europe is literally a 'gift of the glaciers'.
