    Boats Are as Old as We Are

    And with pictures

    Archaeologists have discovered a set of tools they believe prove that man sailed the sea tens of thousands of years earlier than previously thought.
    Rough axes and other tools thought to be between 130,000 and 700,000 years old were found close to shelters on the south coast of the Mediterranean island of Crete.
    Crete has been separated from the mainland of Greece for about five million years, so whoever made the tools must have travelled there by sea, a distance of at least 40 miles.

    Re: Boats Are as Old as We Are

    It would have been interesting if you would have taken the pictures of the artifacts listed in the link and placed them on TN. Then asked the question if they are ancient artifacts or just natural stone. I believe 95 percent of the members would have said they are natural stones. I know I would have!
