According to an article by Reuters, a large unfinished cedar dugout canoe, thought to be about 500 years old, has been discovered near the village of Kasaan on Alaska's Prince of Wales Island. Inhabited by Haida and Tlingit people, the area is a rainforest, making the survival of such an artifact all the more extraordinary.

Thanks to Silvio Antunha for pointing this one out.
