Ancient Puppy Paw Prints Found on Roman Tiles

7 posts in this topic

The paw prints and hoof prints of a few meddlesome animals have been preserved for posterity on ancient Roman tiles recently discovered by archaeologists in England.

"They are beautiful finds, as they represent a snapshot, a single moment in history," said Nick Daffern, a senior project manager with Wardell Armstrong Archaeology. "It is lovely to imagine some irate person chasing a dog or some other animal away from their freshly made tiles."

Every time I've poured concrete a dog just has to run through it. Times haven't changed!

it'd be interesting if they could find something out about the sort of breed of dog it might have been. i think we know the names of some of long extinct breeds, but not as much about physical details.

ok, and it's also a very cute story. ancient roman puppies!
