Dogs are among the most variable species today, but little is known about the morphological variability in the early phases of their history. The Neolithic transition to farming may have resulted in an early morphological diversification as a result of changes in the anthropic environment or intentional selection on specific morphologies. Here, we explore the variability and modularity in mandible form by comparing 525 dog mandibles from European archaeological sites ranging from 8,100 to 3,000...
