Prehistoric canids and the early domestication of the wolf

Our group has recently demonstrated the antiquity of this domestication of the dog. The study of canid assemblages from prehistoric sites will allow us to address the importance fossil dogs and wolves had for prehistoric people. We will test different hypotheses to infer the several roles the large canids played in the life of prehistoric people.
