Even Balangay boats have been identified by the National Museum archeologists. The first discovery in September 1976 was in Ambangan Barangay Libertad. The results from the carbon dating test done by the specialists in Gakushin University of tokyp, Japan reveal that the oldest balangay can ve dated to about 320AD. This balangay is the oldest known Philippine water craft ever recovered and can be viewed at the Balangay Shrine Museum. The Balangays were the vessels that linked Butuan with other Asian Kingdoms during its flourishing trade period. The Boats were built out of Dungon wood (Hereteria Litoralis).
