The flat, peneplaned surfaces of the islands bear testimony to much more recent geological events which have shaped the present topography. The loess that occurs on all the main islands is the westerly extension of the European loess, deposited during Pleistocene times by winds blowing across the cold lands to the south of the ice-covered parts of northern Europe. The other superficial deposits reflect both periglacial conditions and episodes of warmer climates and higher sea levels. The numerous raised-beach deposits and evidence of hominid occupation of cave-sites give the islands a significant place in charting the history of Pleistocene and Holocene times.
