Does it sound amazing that they pulled out of the river beds around 2200 year old dugout canoe? Yes, it does sound amazing, because that is absolutely amazing. They found it a few decades ago but you can't just pull out such an old wooden object. It would be soon destroyed in changed environment.
They managed to do so in 2015 and I got to see it last year, well, one third of it, one day before they dipped it into last stage of conservation process, that lasts for about three years.
When they will finish with conservation processes it is going to be exhibited at Cultural Home Vrhnika. Until then all you can see are pictures.
Canoe is broken twice, but put together it measures approx. 15 meters. For now archaeologist believe that it could be both, of Celts or Roman origin.
Whoever made it used magnificent oak tree, that had been 200 years old and had 1.5 m diameter. And in case you are wondering, yes, those metal clips you see on the photographs are original.
After writing a blog in Slovenian language for 10 years I have finally come to my sense and started writing one in English as well.
