Sacrifice Horse Remains from Late Bronze-Early Iron Age of South Moldova: A Study of Dental and Limb Bone Morphology

Abstract : The article describes dental and postcranial remains of ancient domestic horses of various individual ages from the archaeological monuments of Belozerla Culture Novosiolovca-1 and Olanesti (Southern Moldova). Upper cheek teeth of the horses under study are characterized by relatively long and variable in shape protocone. Single preserved metacarpal and metatarsal bones from Novosiolovca-1 are quite elongated and slender, showing a close resemblance to the mean measurement values of horse remains from Late Bronze age and Early Iron Age from Southeast Europe. Phalanxes of the horses from Novosiolovca-1 and Olanesti are comparatively slender and elongated. Generally, the postcranial measurements of the horses under study correspond to the semi-thin legged type with " average height " in withers (144-136 cm). One of horse individuals from Novosiolovca-1 shows a specific wear of second upper molar caused by a snaffle bit.
