I find this fascinating. Dogs buried with with humans. I can just imagine that the dogs were companions and protecting the dead human, as the human entered the afterlife. And dogs eating the same as humans, that makes sense; I would give any meat to humans first. Those of us that live with dogs, the relationship is 4000 years long.
Coinciding with the Pit Grave culture (4200-3600 years before our era), coming from Southern Europe, the Neolithic communities of the north-eastern Iberian Peninsula started a ceremonial activity related to the sacrifice and burial of dogs. The high amount of cases that are recorded in Catalonia suggests it was a general practice and it proves the tight relationship between humans and these animals, which, apart from being buried next to them, were fed a similar diet to humans’.
