From Discover Magazine’s 80 beats, we learn of a Stone Age grave with over 100 dog teeth from dozens of different dogs arranged in a pattern. The site, 4200-4500 years old, also contained “amber necklace, bone buttons, stone tools, and, in one later grave, a pound of gold jewelry.”

Were the teeth, perhaps, a hall of memories of favourite dogs?
