People during the Ice Age?

What are you asking about them? If you wanted to know what they were called, there were three species of humans known to have lived during the last Ice Age. The earliest was Homo heidelbergensis, which evolved into the other two species during the ice age. These were Homo neanderthalis (which died out 30,000 years ago), and Homo sapiens (modern humans). H. neanderthalis and H. heidelbergensis both died out before the end of the Ice Age. H. sapiens are the only human species known to have survived beyond the end of the last Ice Age.

Where did these people live during the Ice Age?

I am not sure what you mean by "these people." There were three species of humans that lived during the last Ice Age. First were Homo heidelbergensis, which lived in Africa, Europe, and Asia, but died out long before the end of the Ice Age. They are believed to have evolved into two species, Homo neanderthalis and Homo sapiens. H. neanderthalis lived in Europe and the Middle East, but they died out 20,000 years before the Ice Age ended (that is 30,000 years ago). H. sapiens, the modern humans like you and me, are the only species known to have survived the Ice Age. By the end of the Ice Age, we had already spread to every continent except Antarctica.

What age did the Neanderthal live during?
