Fifth international prehistoric logboat regatta in Lago di Ledro (Italy)


The fifth international prehistoric logboat regatta took place at Lago di Ledro in Italy from 5 to 8 July 2019 on the occasion of the inauguration of the new museum "Museo delle palafitte del lago di Ledro". It was part of a "Prehistoric Olympiad" that lasted two days. The ArchaeoConcept team took Xiphia, the dugout canoe of the New Museum Biel (NMB), on a picturesque journey across the Alps. Teams from Italy, France, Austria and Switzerland participated in the race, which was won by the Austrian World Heritage team. In addition, the local population and visitors were able to participate in prehistoric games that introduced them to the way of life of the lake dwellers.
