[The Dog from the Marshes]
Archäologie in Niedersachsen 11, 45-47

At the site of the Jemgumkloster terp mound in Frisia, Germany, a carefully buried skeleton of a large mature male canid was excavated. It had a fractured skull. Its size and the morphological features were inbetween those of a large dog and a wolf. The features of the skeleton allow it to be identified as that of a large dog. Pathological features, anatomical anomalies and human tool marks are discussed.
