Summary
Abstract: The last interglacial period (about 125,000 years ago) is thought to have been
at least as warm as the present climate. Owing to changes in the Earth's orbit
around the Sun, it is thought that insolation in the Northern Hemisphere varied
more strongly than today on seasonal timescales, which would have led to
corresponding changes in the seasonal temperature cycle. Here we present
