ImageWolf Cave is a unique cave in Finland, located on the banks of the Karijoki River, near the city of Kristenestad, Pohyanmaa province. The uniqueness of this cave lies in the fact that during the last ice age it was hidden under a layer of ice and was located below sea level. Excavations in 1996 revealed stone tools and other traces of presumably human activity over 120,000 years old. The cave covers an area of 400 sq. m and is a horizontal gap in the rock. In different historical periods, the sea level fluctuated, due to this, six sedimentary layers were formed at the bottom of the cave. The oldest of them are several hundred thousand years old.
