Thule Summer Settlement Devon Island

This is where there was once a hut. The ground is dug out to give a low wall as a start. With trees and wood being very scarce, whale ribs and skulls were used around the edge pointing towards the middle to make a tent-like structure with radial poles over which skins would have been laid.

Air temp: +3º C Latitude: 74º 30' N Longitude: 83º 31' W
