Described here are our archaeological studies on dogs, and their relationships with humans, in the far distant past. Our project is based at the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada and is led by Dr. Robert Losey, an archaeologist who specializes in human-animal interaction, particularly those with dogs.
Our multi-disciplinary research team conducts most of its studies in Eastern Russia, including Siberia and the Russian Far East. We are primarily funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), but the team also collaborates and integrates its studies with a number of other international projects.
