Say hello to a new type of archeologist.
I like this idea and is kind of surpriced it havn't been used more untill now.
It could be that dogs tend to dig, and they could by accident ruin important artifacts or dig sites.
It's going to be exciting to see what this and other dogs can sniff out of the ground, it's propably mostly going to be old bones and very old dead
bodys, but could be a great tool to find them a litle faster.
MEET Migaloo - the wonder dog that can
sniff out a 600-year-old human skeleton buried almost 2m underground
The three-year-old female black labrador cross is believed to be the world's first trained archeology dog.
She is destined to work on surveys of Aboriginal sacred sites across Australia, with other dogs now likely to be similarly trained to work on
excavations at ancient civilisation sites such as Egypt, the Americas, Asia, and Europe.
Brisbane dog expert Gary Jackson trained the clever canine using 250-year-old skeletal remains from an Aboriginal burial site, on loan from the South
"At the moment in the world of archaeology there is no tool that can tell you there are human remains underground, we use ground penetrating
radar, magnetic susceptibility and historical or oral records. "But now Migaloo the wonder dog can do it."
