Tekeli-li! Possible plot holes in At the Mountains of Madness?

Early on, we see that big chunks have been taken out of Lake and the other men at the camp. At the time, I figured that Shoggoths were involved, so I forgot about it. Later, it turned out that Shoggoths were not on the surface. So... What was that all about? Well, if you remember, the glyphs said the Elder Things defeated the Shoggoths using a cunning weapon which vaporised big chunks of stuff. Sounds like that's what happened to Lake and his men.

But wait... The Elder Things had been in a cave since the Archean, and I don't recall there being any technology with them. Wasn't the uprising around the Permian? Also, since the city was founded late in the history of Elder Thing occupation of the region, how'd they even know about it? It's implied they've been here since the Hadean, yes, but the city came a lot later.

Am I just confused, or does AtMoM have some plot holes?

Luck? Telepathy? Happenstance?
