Bone House Ruins

Because there are ruins – especially gothic ones - which remind of skeletons it seems fascinating that there are even ruins which are built from bones.

In Arctic Canada can still be seen the rest of Inuit huts built from whale bones. These white bones in the green landscape must be impressive (I know them only by photos).

But that’s not all. In Siberia they found the rests of the huts of mammoth hunters built from mammoth bones. These bones were the only material to make shelter on the barren tundra.
