About this book

Using new genetic research and the material from excavations, Anubis to Cerberus first examines the archaeological evidence for the origins of the dog and the process of domestication in pre-history. Lavishly illustrated, this book combines the latest scientific material with cultural history to tell the developing story of the inter-relationship between man and dog from its origin in remote antiquity to that which we know today. It will be invaluable for archaeologists wishing to identify dogs and canid remains, for zoologists tracing the history of the species, and fascinating for anyone who has a serious interest in the history of the dog and the origins of modern breeds.
