Friends of the Pleistocene are a multidisciplinary group with a common interest in the Pleistocene. The main activity is semi-annual fieldtrips. Recent fieldtrips have been run in conjunction with INTIMATE project meetings.
In protest to the IGC proposal to delete the Quaternary System from the Global Time Scale, Friends of the Pleistocene was informally re-named "Friends of the Quaternary" in 2004.
