Here’s some possible evidence that dogs were domesticated more than 30,000 years ago, which is about 15,000 years earlier than previously thought. This dog skull was discovered in the Czech Republic by Archeologist by Mietje Germonpré, of Belgium’s Museum of Natural History and is considered by Archeology magazine to be one of the Top 10 Discoveries of 2011. For me the best part is that the dog was buried with a mastodon bone in its mouth. Have to wonder if it was a final treat or a spoil of battle. (via Boing Boing)
