Women and dogs were in close contact in the neolithic age of hunters-fishers-gatherers. This has been suggested by Leiden osteoarchaeologist Dr Andrea Waters-Rist and fellow researchers who have studied a tiny biological fossil. The fossil was found close to the skeleton of a female at the 8000-year-old burial site in Southern Siberia. The researchers' findings have been published in the Journal of Archaeological Science.
