Abstract: <p>[ES] More than two hundred and fifty kilogrammes (six hundred pounds) of uncountable osseous fragments of domestic animals from the beginning &oacute;f our era have been extracted in the course of archeological excavations carried out in Villaverde. Their inventory and study have proved they belonged to, at least, five hundred goats. fifty sheep, half a dozen swine and two dogs. These animals show affinity with others from the Neolithic and Protohistoric periods of North Africa. Therefore, the goat may be included in the mamber goat group (mambrinus group) and the shepp in &quot;longipes&quot; group, both of them mummified by the Egyptians. Possibly, the swine is similar to the one found in Toukh (Egypt) and the dog may be included in the Saharan Kabyle sheepdog characterized by its small size. </p>
