The Holocene is known as having had a relatively stable climate compared with other time periods.
The start of the Holocene also corresponds with the rise of complex human civilizations.
Indeed, I feel inclined to say that there is no such thing as a Holocene age.
The more recent of the two epochs of the Quaternary Period, beginning at the end of the last major Ice Age, about 10,000 years ago. It is characterized by the development of human civilizations. Also called Recent. See Chart at geologic time.
