How Old Is This Boat ?

Boats have served as short distance transportation since early times.Circumstantial evidence, such as the early settlement of Australia over 40,000 years ago, suggests that boats have been used since very ancient times. The earliest boats have been predicted to be logboats. The oldest boats to be found by archaeological excavation are logboats from around 7,000-9,000 years ago, though a 7,000 year-old seagoing boat made from reeds and tar has been found in Kuwait.

Being more capacious than carts and wagons, and suitable for both land and grass, boats were used between 4000BCE-3000BCE in Sumer, ancient Egypt and in the Indian Ocean.

Boats played an important part in the commerce between the Indus Valley Civilization and Mesopotamia.Evidence of varying models of boats has also been discovered in various Indus Valley sites.

The accounts of historians Herodotus, Pliny the Elder, and Strabo suggest that boats were being used for commerce and traveling.
