Long before the idea of a global glaciation was established, a series of discoveries began to accumulate evidence for ancient Precambrian glaciations. The first of these discoveries was published in 1871 by J. Thomson who found ancient glacier-reworked material ( tillite ) in Islay , Scotland. Similar findings followed in Australia (1884) and India (1887). A fourth and very illustrative finding that came to be known as " Reusch's Moraine " was reported by Hans Reusch in northern Norway in 1891. Many other findings followed, but their understanding was hampered by the rejection of continental drift . [5]
