Origin of Dogs

This photo provided by the Center for American Archaeology on Nov. 12, 2013 shows canine bones buried at the Koster site in Greene County, Ill. The fossil specimen at this site is dated to 8,500 years ago. A large DNA study suggests dogs arose from wolves in Europe some 19,000 to 32,000 years ago. Results were published online Thursday, Nov. 14, 2013 by the journal Science. (AP Photo/Center for American Archaeology, Del Baston)
