It has a 6 inch deep hold, and two wooden pegs,(which sound like thole pins to me) shaped like tree stumps on each side. Some of the earliest images we have of oars are from shards of pottery in China, and there are some in Greece as well, and 1400 miles from Mt. Instead it is most likely that our absence of paddles, boats, and oars in our vaults of ancient artifacts older than 10K, is due primarily to the unfortunate fact that wooden stuff just can’t last in the ground much longer than that.Olympus in a north northwesterly direction there are some fantastic rock carvings called the ‘Tanum Petroglyphs’ in the borderlands of Sweden and Norway. Nonetheless, it’s reasonable to assume that humans have been pushing and pulling things through the water with the aid of paddles or oars for a very, very long time; probably since humans have been the humans that we recognize today, which is said to be between 35,000 to 50,000 years! Or..suggest that we (or our distant relatives) have been boating even before that.Could this swim-like behavior be left over from a time when our existence was inextricably linked to the water?This may be true, and not only in humans,- most animals of the world appear to be able to swim, and all are naturally buoyant.lthough it is not true that babies are natural swimmers, there is a reflex called the Bradycardic Response which makes babies hold their breath and open their eyes when submerged in water.Also, until around 6 months, babies placed in water tummy down reflexively paddle their arms and legs, which makes them look like natural swimmers. Now, imagine placing a baby sized surfboard or better yet, a miniature dugout canoe, under this swimming baby and you’ll have a natural born paddler.

Why sailing is suggested I’m not sure, since the distances needed to get there from the mainland seem to be easily paddled or rowed on a half decent log with sea levels of present day’s geography.In 1723, Pierre Fauchard, a French surgeon credited as the Father of Modern Dentistry, published his influential book, The Surgeon Dentist, a Treatise on Teeth, which for the first time defined a comprehensive system for caring for and treating teeth.Additionally, Fauchard first introduced the idea of dental fillings and the use of dental prosthesis, and he identified that acids from sugar led to tooth decay.The world’s first paddle may have been invented during a few splashy minutes by some enterprising young and energetic cave kid; “Hey mom, I just used this moose antler to paddle a tree trunk from Beasty Island to our campsite! One 7,500 yr old oar was found in the United Kingdom, another in Changnyeong S.Korea made of pine, and one 2 ft long ‘oar’ was found in Japan in 1999.
