Since the findings of the “Clay house” has passed more than a hundred years, but scientists were unable to explain what was built thisobject.

More recently, geologists were sure that the glaciers while driving perform the role of a skating rink, which removes from the surface of the soil, plants and act as erosion, cleansing the top layer of bedrock fully. Today, scientists are rethinking this theory, since under the glacier thickness of about 3 km was found tundra in its original form. It was found that the soil and plants were below the ice more than 2.5 million years.
