Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (and other deer) of the European Ice Age - Online Talk

Mon, 18 December 2023


While there's no evidence to suggest reindeer didn't fly in the Ice Age, there are many things that we have discovered about them. This talk will look at reindeer and other deer species during the Ice Age in Europe, including their distributions, diet, and how they were used by humans (although sadly probably not to pull Santa’s sleigh).
