A dugout canoe that may date from Viking times has been found in Norway, yielding clues to the lives of people who fished a small lake perhaps 1,000 years ago.
The pine vessel was dragged from Royraas Lake in southern Norway Monday after a tip from the family of two elderly men who had spotted the boat when they swam in the lake as children in the 1930s.
