    Ice Age Now comes to mind. Not sure if they have something that you’re looking for but it is the source that I looked for before and after last Ice Age for sea level of what Earth looked like.

    It is around that time period that monsoon rains turned the Sahara from desert into grasslands. So beyond reduced ice, there was some major changes in weather patterns; which were beneficial to mankind.

    CA also has a lot of information about ice during the last 10,000 years! I found this regarding Ellesmere Island:

    I know he has lots more.

    There’s a map showing what it looked like 18,000 years ago.

    Do we know if the sea ice was permanent or did parts of it melt in summer. Sea level was 120m lowe than today so pressure at sea level must have been higher .

    No legend, but I take it the numbers mean thousands of years ago.
    They also have this:

    Try this. http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/cgi-bin/paleo/peltice.pl It is an Ice Coverage Reconstruction at 1Kyr Intervals interactive map database. The maps are rather crude though, but you can input different periods together and compare ice coverage.

    I am happily impressed with the response of your readership!
