2,400-year old ruins where found on the northern coast of Greenland, more than 300 miles north of the current northernmost town in the world.

Inuit legends recount them encountering people they called the Tuniit (singular Tuniq) or Sivullirmiut “First Inhabitants”. According to legend, the first Inhabitants were giants, taller and stronger than the Inuit but afraid to interact and “easily put to flight.”

These people existed in that area before the Inuit, who later replaced them. Today we know them as the Dorset.
