Dr. Sarah Schrader discovered an intentionally buried dog within a Kerma period grave at Abu Fatima. The dog, with a leather collar, was found in association with a young adult male; both were placed on top of cowhide. Dogs were also found buried at the feet of individuals at the royal burial site in the Kerma capital.
***Update: Here is a photo of the leather collar found with the dog.
Fabulous find–would love to see an image of the collar as well!
We’ve updated the post with a picture of the collar.
