Mummified dog believed to be 1000 years old

6 posts in this topic

What is said to be the first found in Mexico, a 1,000-year-old mummified dog is now being studied by Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH).

The dog was one of many relics and archaeological materials found in 1953 to recently be sent to the INAH. It was among around 2,500 pieces uncovered in the Candelaria Cave (Cueva de la Candelaria) in Coahuila.

According to archaeologist Alejandro Bautista Valdespino, this dog “reinforces the idea that dogs were placed as companions in the funerary traditions of the region’s nomads, it also presents the possibility that these animals were domesticated,”
