History of the Valley

by Theresa K├Ânig last modified 2007-06-06 15:08

The glaciers of the last ice age eroded the valley to a depth of about 100 metres below the actual valley floor along weak zones in the rocks. At the height of the last glaciation about 18,000 to 20,000 years ago, the glacier reached up to the level shown on the plate. Only the highest peaks could be seen as nunataks or islands in the stream of ice.
