    'More proof that ancient Britons had cannibalistic habits'

    Many ancient human remains, aged at about 15,000 years old, have been unearthed over the years from Gough’s Cave. These bones have been studied and research has been published, including a paper in 2011 in which Museum scientists revealed that the earliest known examples of human skull-cups were made in the UK. Today, new research shows more cannibalistic evidence, including human tooth marks on many of the human bones. The research points to the existence of a sophisticated culture of butchering and carving of human remains, the team says. ‘We’ve identified a far greater degree of human modification than recorded in earlier research,’ said Dr Silvia Bello, from the Natural History Museum’s Department of Earth Sciences, and lead researcher. ‘We’ve found undoubting evidence for defleshing, disarticulation, human chewing, crushing of spongy bone, and the cracking of bones to extract marrow.’ - See more at: http://www.nhm.ac.uk/our-science/science-news/2015/april/more-proof...

    I think the discovery at Gough's cave of fully matured small wolf skeletons was first Known domestication of 'dogs'.
