10,000 years ago

Our World Heritage: When the heavy inland ice melted, the pressure on the Earth’s crust eased and land started rising. Even before all the ice had melted, the High Coast had already risen 500 metres. About 10,000 years ago, the pace of the land uplift was around 10 centimetres per year, which is considerably more than the pace of 9 millimetres per year nowadays. Around that time one of the High Coast highest located cobble field was formed at Mossaberget, Skuleskogen.  

Other World Heritages: About 9,300 years ago, Stone Age people started painting  hands on the cave walls of the Argentine World Heritage Site Cueva de las Manos.
