A crescent below the Black Sea from Russia, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and all the way around Northern Turkey to the Sea of Marmara and a few spots towards the Aegean, a ridge all along Western Norway and Southern Central Iceland are the areas I can see without too much trouble that are the 50-100 cm “purple” color.

    People do not realize that snow and ice was not over the entire Northern part of the Northern Hemisphere but occurred in specific locations, the same as we are seeing now.

    Eurasia during most extreme part of full glacial conditions (17,000-15,000 14C y.a.).
    Ice masses are the light grey areas so only a small portion of Eurasia was covered by glacier unlike North America.
