Epipaleolithic dog burial found in Portugal

30 Jun
The finding took place at Poças de São Bento (Alcácer do Sal, Portugal). The burial was found near an Epipaleolithic settlement and necropolis dating to some 8000 years ago near the River Sado.
Older dogs are known to have lived with humans in Europe however, for example in Anton Koba (Basque Country, 13 Ka), two sites in Ukraine (18 Ka) or Goyet (Belgium, 32 Ka), which is the oldest domestic dog known worldwide.
