    That's an amazing discovery and if they conduct a systematic search this winter they will probably find a lot more.
    It's amazing how much the archeologists can learn from these sites.
    I'm living in an area which used to be a coastal marshland with a significant number of (pre) Roman settlements and the archeologists could almost reconstruct the complete live of the people that used to live in these settlements, highly interesting!
    I hope that the archeologists find enough to further clarify the past of the original tribes

    Quite a few years ago Roger Stouff, at that time a contributer here, was finding such canoes working as an archeologist.

    They actually built boats without power tools or epoxy?

    epoxy is crap
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.
