039078.AA.0820.warming38.kc--Yttygran, Russia--This is ''Whalebone Allee,'' a shrine to the whale, built in the 13th or 14th century. It is the abandoned construction of a relatively large and organized civilization, with an amphitheater and 120 stone meat caches that still contain mummified whale meat. It is an island called Yttygran. On the beach is a stretch of 60 massive bowhead whale skulls arranged geometrically. Tall whale jawbones stand upright amidst them like sentries. .
