4,500-year-old boat among Viking artifacts hoard discovered in Ireland
Twelve boats, dating from 2,500 BC to the 11th century AD, along with other Viking artifacts have been discovered in Lough Corrib in Connemara, County Galway.

Archaeologists have used radiocarbon dating to establish that one of the boats dates from 2,500 BC. Other items that were found include several battle axes and other weapons.

The ancient items were discovered by Captain Trevor Northage, a marine surveyor mapping the lake to update British admiralty charts. The Underwater Archaeology Unit (UAU) from the National Monuments Service then carried out a series of investigative dives.

The 4,500-year-old log boat settled into the mud when it sank and was covered over time. A mixture of organic sediment and lake water assisted in the preservation process. Even the seats in the boats are preserved.

This is really strange

12 Early bronge age and iron age log boats resembling the viking longboats.
The Annaghkeen boat dated to 4,500 years ago and 2 more of the same age in the widest area that were discovered in earlier years and which archaeologists think they could have the same builder or at least built in the same culture during the bronge age.

So what does it mean about the Viking culture that officially appeared between around the 8th century ac?
(and is supposed to be brought in northern europe following the indoeuropean theory?)

The oldest of the vessels is the Annaghkeen log boat, which is 4,500 years old, close to the age of the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt. Northage pointed out, while speaking to the Irish Times, that it had been at the bottom of the lough for 3,500 years when the Vikings arrived.
“The Annaghkeen boat was made from a very big tree, and it took a lot of skill and effort to make it.

Interesting... the bible alleges the great flood happened in 2304 BC, which was 4318 years ago. Apparently, someone other than the alleged Noah had a boat, too:

The placing of a catastrophic global flood in the year 2304 BC means that all civilizations discovered by archaeology must fit into the last 4,285 years.

Oh now, this is some interesting history.
Ha, I have a good friend who was born in the area, I've always joked with him that he reminds me of a Viking.
