Two sources of complementary information about the palaeoclimate are (a) dynamical models of the Earth climate system and (b) proxy data such as pollen, from which reconstructions may be attempted. Both of these are subject to considerable uncertainty, but of very different types. Recent advances in quite different parts of statistics allow us to anticipate a new level of inter-comparison focussed on palaeoclimate dynamics. This brief paper outlines a research agenda.
