Not many boats survive the hardships of time for so long, so this is worth a remark here.
Fishermen from Drogheda found the canoe at the Boyne river in Ireland, not far from the famous site of Newgrange.
The canoe is 3 meters long and 61 cm wide with a hook at one of the extremes, what may mean it was used as vehicle for a single individual or as cargo transporter, the hook serving maybe to tie a rope for it to be towed.
It is believed to date from c. 5000 years ago (Chalcolithic period in pan-European chronology), though research is still ongoing.
