Some textile-related work tasks were only carried out by women during the Bronze Age (1900-1600 BC) in southern Spain, a new study of dental records shows. Researchers analysed fossilised teeth of 106 individuals buried in Granada, southern Spain, who were part of the ancient ‘Argaric’ culture 4,000 years ago. Women workers used their front teeth – incisors and canines – to perform tasks that involved biting into threads and cords, they found. The specific dental wear features, including notches, flakes and grooves on the enamel, resulted from the manipulation of plant and animal fibres used to produce textiles and baskets. Scientists say that dental remains (pictured) from the Argaric culture, who lived in southern Spain 4,000 years ago, prove certain jobs were reserved exclusively for women, such as the production of hand-crafted threads and textiles RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Modern humans and Neanderthals lived in Portuguese caves… Hundreds of Spinosaurus teeth unearthed in ancient river bed… Ancient tooth the size of a human hand belonged to an… Ancient footprints found in Saudi Arabia reveal how humans… Share this article Share 21 shares While the talents of the Argaric culture have previously been documented, a link between these activities and the… Read full this story
