The famous dog skull from Eliseevich, which dates from the thirtieth millennium BC, actually belonged the wolf. The reanalysis results in a review generally accepted theory regarding the domestication of dogs.

Authors of New Studies claim that a domestic dog appeared only in the Neolithic era, when a man moved to agriculture and his lifestyle became settled. Skulls found in the burial ground of Shaman II (7372, Irkutsk region) and Ust-Belaya (6817 years old, Chukotka), confirmed the status canine. And earlier skulls turned out to be wolf ones. Biologist Abby Drake and her colleagues consider this fact evidence that the dogs domesticated pretty quickly, the wolves are not ancient man tamed.

Drake says: wolves are too dangerous to be intentionally tame. Probably some unknown the modern science is the representative of the canines, attracted by the “garbage” in first permanent settlements. Scientists tend to believe that to not wolves “joined” the ancient man, but small canids, reminiscent of modern jackals or coyotes.

It should be said that the research results obtained American biologists contradict a large number of works, including the number written by Russian scientists. Our experts are not only claim that the skull from Eliseevich belongs to the dog, but also describe the functions that were performed by domesticated canines in Upper Paleolithic settlements. Animals helped people to hunt worn luggage, used in wars between tribes. Scientist the dispute erupts …
