During a search on Google Earth, I stumble upon this Area in the cold artic region of the Novaya Zemlya Island in Russia. Nothing official but this Area is quite suspicious and unnatural. Something that resemble structures with right angles and someting similar to big heads (roughly 15 meters).
This Island is really OFF-LIMITS. A total of 130 nuclear tests were conducted there atmospherically, underground, and in the surrounding oceans between 1954 and 1990.
One of the must restricted area in Soviet Union hide an unknown ancient civilization? An hidden Russian Base? Or someting else.....?

A few hundred years ago, in 1596, a Dutch vessel with Willem Barentsz stranded at the island,

To survive the arctic winter the used their boat to built a house. The ruin's are still there I believe

Isnt this the Island where the soviets tested the largest nuclear bomb ever detonated? I have a feeling any ancient ruins would have been destroyed by this. Plus with all due respect every thing you have colorized just looks like pixelazation.

The best way to hide some thing is to drop a very big bomb on it!

Yes, they dropped largest nuclear bomb "Tsar Bomba" there. There has been always very strong military presence. Its not ordinary island, its extension of Ural mountain range, so its very mountainous island.

There was actually secret German Navy base, where they did seaplane operations, like surveillance of Allied ships en route.

As the creator of the Interactive Google Map of Willem Barentsz 1596 Fatal 3rd Arctic Voyage referred to above, check out location #22A (the tent symbol with a flag) where it states the following:

“Captain Carlsen's sloop, The Solid, recorded on September 9, 1871 having sighted Bartentsz’ Het Behouden Huys (The Rescued House) as follows: At noon we observed the latitude 76° 12’ the distance from shore guessed The house on shore was 16 metres long by 10 metres broad and the fir wood planks of which it was composed were 1 inches thick by from 14 to 16 inches broad and as far as we could make out they were nailed together The first things we saw amongst the ruins of the house were two ships cooking pans of copper a crowbar or bar of iron a gun barrel an alarum a clock a chest in which was found several files and other instruments many engravings a flute and also a few articles of dress.”

Barentsz dismantled his ship to build a lodge to survive the winter and for fire wood.

It has a photo of the remains of the 1596 wooden built lodge of Willem Barentsz on Novaya Zemlya.

The map is based on the book "The Three Voyages of William Barents to the Arctic Regions (1594, 1595, and 1596)." and has quotes and page references to it.

Well, geez, it's not like that glacial ice sheet that used to sit on it (and still sits on the northern island) had anything what-so-ever to do with it's terrain & appearance.

OP, if you took the time both look at the terrain with a critical eye, as well as to read the page you linked, you wouldn't be so hot to jump on the lost civ boat. They're called rocks, dude. Glacial movement tends to both move and carve them. Just because you think it looks weird from a blurry bird's eye view doesn't mean it's anything more than ordinary geology. Granted, nomadic Nenets (Samoyeds) lived there for a time until the Russians gave them the boot, I doubt there are any structures such as temples. Unless someone like Byrd can refute me here, I don't believe the Arctic nomadic cultures tend to build anything of the sort that you're suggesting.

However, to conflict with the idea of nomads not building permanent buildings, the nomadic Uighurs did build Por-Bajin in Tuva in southern Siberia. It's got a pretty neat history to it.

you come up with the craziest theories! I would love to know if you actually believe the stuff you post or are just looking for stars and flags.

Early humans may have lived here at one time, it looks to be a inhospitable place thats heavily scarred from glaciers. I think anytime theres a google earth place that has overlay like it intentional or not becomes very fertile ground for conspiracy theories.

My dear VonDooomen, your "acid comment" is however welcome.

Yes, I belive in ancients and stiil unknown civilizations that growed on this planet before the Flood and the dramatic climate change, before the Ice Age, and before that Mammoths were suddenly freezed with grass still in their mouth....

And yes, I think that Russian archeologists should take a closer look in that Area.
