Old Boat

Filed under: Ireland — John Maass @ 3:16 am

From the Irish Independent, this brief piece of historical news, about an old boat just unearthed:

A PREHISTORIC ‘dugout’ – a boat cut from a tree trunk, believed to be about 3,000 years old – has been unearthed. Archaeologists were called in after the find at Netley, near Crossmolina, during work on the Ballina Regional Water Scheme in Co Mayo. The boat is in very good condition and the National Museum has expressed interest, according to the site director, archaeologist Joanna Nolan.  Work on the water pipeline was delayed during the archaeological dig.http://www.unison.ie/irish_independent/
