Arcaim ( Chelyabinsk region) Although the settlement was burned and abandoned, a lot of details are preserved. The settlement was protected by two circular walls. There was a central square, surrounded by two circles of dwellings separated by a street. The diameter of the enclosing wall was 160 m. It was built from earth packed into timber frames, and reinforced with unburned clay brick, with thickness of 4-5 m. and height of 5.5 m. The settlement was surrounded with a 2-meter-deep moat. There are 4 entrances into the settlement through the outer and the inner walls with the main entrance to the west.
The dwellings were between 110 and 180 square meters in area. The outer ring of dwellings number 39 or 40, with entrances to a circular street in the middle of the settlement. The central street was drained by a covered channel. Approximately 1500 to 2500 people could have lived in the settlement. Surrounding Arkaim's walls, were arable fields, 130 to 140 metres by 45 metres, irrigated by a system of canals.

On June 28, 2007, the volcano began to experience the largest explosions so far recorded in this eruption cycle. An ash plume from the eruption reached a height of 32,000 feet before drifting westward, disrupting air traffic from the United States to Asia and causing ashfalls on Alaska's Unimak Island.
