The Pleistocene fauna in Palaeolithic sites: the human-animal connection

Human-animal relationships during the Palaeolithic have often been regarded to be limited to subsistence related issues.

Prehistoric canids and the early domestication of the wolf

Our group has recently demonstrated the antiquity of this domestication of the dog.

We will test different hypotheses to infer the several roles the large canids played in the life of prehistoric people.
