The Pleistocene Epoch was from about 1.8 million to 11,000 years ago. The word means "nearly present" or "most new" in Greek.

It is marked by the ice ages and the emergence of the human species.

The Pleistocene is a geologic time period called an epoch. The Pleistocene began about 1.8 million years ago and ended only 10 thousand years ago.

about 10,000 years ago!

If you mean "pleistocene" then it is the period of time from 1.8 million years ago to about 10,000 years ago. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pleistocene for more information.

The Pleistocene Epoch, known as the last ice age, began 1.8 million-years ago and lasted until about 11,700-years ago. During this time, ice covered huge parts of the Earth. Homo sapiens evolved during the Pleistocene Epoch, and by the end of the era were found in all corners of the Earth.

The last Ice Age started in the early Pleistocene, 1.8 million years ago and ended in the late Pleistocene, 10 000 years ago.

Woolly mammoths lived from about 150,000 years ago until 10,000 years ago. That was during the Pleistocene series. The Pleistocene was the first series of the Quaternary period.

The procoptodon was alive during the Pleistocene Epoch (1,600,000 - 40,000 years ago) However some wikipedia sources suggest they were disappearing as early as 50,000 years ago. Some say that they were hunted into extinction by Australian Aborigionals 18,000 years ago. But it is certain that they were alive for most of the Pleistocene.

The Cenozoic is a major geologic era starting at 65 million years ago and encompassing the present. The Pleistocene Epoch is a much smaller division of time that is part of the Quaternary Period of the Cenozoic Era, from 1.8 million years ago to 10,000 years ago.

during the last years of the Pleistocene, from approximately 110,000 to 12,000 years ago.

The Pleistocene epoch occurred between 1.6 million to 11,000 years ago. It is known as the ice age, because large sheets of ice covered much of the earth.

28,000 years ago, you would have been in in the Cenozoic era, the Quaternary period, and the Pleistocene epoch.

Woolly mammoths are an extinct species of elephant, often with long curved tusks. In northern regions, a mammoth had a covering of long hair. Mammoths lived during the Pleistocene period from 1.6 million to about 10,000 years ago.Woolly Mammoths are ancestors of modern elephants and belong to the group proboscideans.

Before the Pleistocene came the Pliocene
