Abstract: We survey–by means of twelve examples–the concept of varifold, as generalised submanifold, with emphasis on basic aspects and the compactness theorem for integral varifolds, while keeping prerequisites to a minimum. Integral varifolds are the natural language for studying the limiting behaviour of sequences of smooth submanifolds under area and mean curvature bounds.
