Sažetak
Archaeology dogs project started in 2015 through cooperation between the Department of Archaeology (University of Zadar) and Centre S.PAS. The main aim of the project is to test abilities of Human remains detection (HRD) dogs on various archaeological burial sites and belonging to different historical periods. Another aim of the project is to develop and set a standardized methodology of HRD dogs use in archaeology, in order for it to become an acceptable and usable method of searching archaeological burial sites. So far, dogs have been tested on the archaeological sites dated from the prehistoric period to the late middle age. The burial site of the Drvišica hillfort was the first site on which dogs were used. Dogs were tested on the prehistoric necropolis of the site, dated to 8th-1st c. BC, as well as inside of the late medieval church of St. Vid on the same site. The dogs searched these areas in both a blinded and double-blinded fashion. Dogs’ indications were validated by archaeological excavations. The research on the prehistoric site at the Drvišica hillfort has resulted in the discovery of five new prehistoric graves dated to 8th- 1st c. BC. The search inside and outside of the church of St. Vid (13th-19th c.) has resulted in many dogs' indications. However, during the archaeological excavations only dislocated human bones were discovered inside of the church. This proves that the church was used for burying, but after the church stopped being in use, bones were probably removed to the new cemetery. However, the specific smell of human decomposing was still preserved in soil which was the reason for dogs' indications. The excavation outside of the church still wasn't conducted and therefore indications can't be validated yet. This year, the dogs were also used at the archaeological site Nadin- Gradina within the project Ravni Kotari: Urbanization and Landscape Change in Northern Dalmatia. The site was occupied for three thousand years. However, dogs were used on the part of the Early Modern period burial site. Only a small part of the burial site indicated by dogs was confirmed by excavation so far. Within the excavation trench, three indications were confirmed as graves. The rest of the indications will be validated during next excavation campaigns. The Archaeological dogs project doesn't involve only use of dogs on archaeological sites, and validation of indications by excavation. Within the project, dogs are not the only tool used for research, but one of them. In order to get the best documentation of dogs’ work, documenting from the ground and from the air is used. For precise marking of indications, a total station is used, and all tracks and marks are later entered and analysed within ArcGIS programme. Complex documenting of dogs’ behaviour, as well as mapping of their movement and indications enable analysing their behaviour in relation to the landscape. After analysis, the excavation is conducted on those positions which are considered as the positions of the highest probability.
