Maxim Yermokhin, Candidate of Biology, Leading Researcher of the Laboratory of Productivity and Sustainability of Plant Communities of V.F. Kuprevich Institute of Experimental Botany, NAS of Belarus, led the research. It was established that the oak from which the ancient boat was made was about 300 years at the moment of its logging. Consequently, the tree began to grow at the very beginning of the 13th century.
