Dugouts are the oldest type of boats found by archaeologists, [2] and boats have served as transportation since the earliest times. [3] Circumstantial evidence, such as the early settlement of Australia over 40,000 years ago, findings in Crete dated 130,000 years ago, [4] and findings in Flores dated to 900,000 years ago, [5] suggest that boats have been used since prehistoric times. The earliest boats are thought to have been logboats , [6] and the oldest boats found by archaeological excavation date from around 7,000–10,000 years ago. The oldest recovered boat in the world is the Pesse canoe , a dugout made from the hollowed tree trunk of a Pinus sylvestris and constructed somewhere between 8200 and 7600 BC. This canoe is exhibited in the Drents Museum in Assen, Netherlands. [7] [8] Other very old dugout boats have also been recovered. [9] [10] [11] Rafts have operated for at least 8,000 years. [12] A 7,000-year-old seagoing reed boat has been found in Kuwait . [13] Boats were used between 4000 and 3000 BC in Sumer , [3] ancient Egypt [14] and in the Indian Ocean . [3]
