Since the interglacial periods of the Pleistocene were of longer duration than the time elapsed since the end of the Pleistocene 11,000 years ago, it is sometimes suggested that the Holocene, or Recent, epoch, which is occurring now, may be merely another such interglacial stage and that the glaciers may return at some future time.

 The Elements of Geology - CHAPTER XXII - THE QUATERNARY
The first, the Pleistocene or Glacial epoch, is marked off from the Tertiary by the occupation of the northern parts of North America and Europe by vast ice sheets; the second, the Recent epoch, began with the disappearance of the ice sheets from these continents, and merges into the present time.
As the Glacial epoch approached its end, and the Labrador ice field melted back for the last time to near its source, the land on which the ice had lain in eastern North America was so depressed that the sea now spread far and wide up the St. Lawrence valley.
In the presence of these glaciated surfaces we cannot doubt that the area of the drift has been overridden by vast sheets of ice which, in their steady flow, rasped and scored the rock bed beneath by means of the stones with which their basal layers were inset, and in places plucked and shattered it.

 History & Nature :: Park Geology
Fifty thousand years ago - in a period known as the Pleistocene Epoch - the land beneath the Park was buried under a sheet of ice 1,000 feet thick.
Thick forests began to prevail about 8,000 years ago and, as the vegetation grew and the warming continued, diverse species of wildlife spread from the south and new ecosystems were born.
The Wisconsin Ice Sheet also left behind depressions in the land known as "knob and kettle terrain." These "kettle ponds" formed the geological surface necessary to create the Park's watercourse, beginning with Fallkill Falls and continuing into the Ravine, Lullwater and the Lake.

Therefore the actual birth of Jesus must be dated a little earlier, probably in 4 BC The term epoch is often confused with era in writing.
In geology, it is the name applied to large divisions of geological process, e.g., Paleozoic era (see geology).
Since in different calendars years are of different lengths and do not begin on the same day (see calendar), several factors have to be used in changing the year of one era to that of another, and even with conversion charts there are still difficulties.

 Geology of Ice Age National Scientific Reserve of Wisconsin (Chapter 6)
The moraine was described by Chamberlin (1883a, 1883b:261-298) as the terminal moraine of the Second Glacial Epoch and cited as the most important discontinuity in the Pleistocene epoch in Wisconsin.
Alden (1918:209-217) clearly recognized that not all of the drift in the Johnstown Moraine was deposited during the one substage, that the thickness of the drift varied markedly from segment to segment of the moraine, and that the outermost front of the Johnstown Moraine was not everywhere synchronous nor representative of equal periods of time.
Outside the moraine near the town line the limestone crest of the ridge is covered only by thin clay soil and scattered boulders which probably came from the moraine or the ice front itself.

Although stratigraphers agree upon the names and dates of the Epochs of the Cenozoic, there is considerable disagreement on the Periods of the Cenozoic:
Crater was later covered by Oligocene and Neogene coastal sediments, but subsurface crater structurally controlled groundwater flow from then on
Cenozoic is by FAR the best known Era, representing only 1.4 % of Earth History, yet the most commonly encountered rocks on the Earth's surface and on the sea floor.
