Explanation:
variscan orogeny

Variscan orogeny

The Variscan (a subdivision of the Hercynian orogeny) is a geologic mountain-building event recorded in the European mountains and hills called the Variscan Belt. This occurred in Paleozoic times (from ~390 to ~310 mya) and reflects continental collision between Laurasia and Gondwana to form Pangea. This early collision was a precursor to the collision that caused the Variscan-Allegheny-Ouachita orogeny in Pennsylvanian times. The Variscan orogeny is sometimes also known as the Armorican orogeny.
