Prehistoric discovery in US lake leaves experts in awe as divers race to find more

• Daily Mail

The Wisconsin Historical Society uncovered the boats in the state's northerner Lake Mendota, which date between 4,500 years to 800 years old.

Artifacts like fishing nets and tools were also found among the preserved vessels that were each made from a single tree. 

The canoes were also discovered along a shoreline that has since been submerged, suggesting a previously unknown civilization once thrived in the area.
