As far as they knew, they would simply have been getting further and further from the only land they knew (i.e. Europe)

Good points, but if everything was covered with ice & the ice was increasing, wouldn't they be forced to live at the water's edge, and gradually move as far south as they could get? There wouldn't have been any land anywhere, unless they kept moving. This seems plausible to me, purely on the level of uninformed conjecture.
