Macrofossil analyses of a Quaternary, till-covered sequence in Washington Land, north-western Greenland, are indicative of biotas similar to those of today. The only southern extralimital species found is Empetrum nigrum; its presence indicates slightly higher summer temperatures than today. AMS radiocarbon dating confirms that the sequence is pre- Holocene, and we suggest that the sequence belongs to the last interglacial stage.
