Archaeologists have shed new light on the two 8,500-year-old human tooth, which was once part of a necklace or a bracelet.

The three teeth that were found at the Neolithic site of Çatalhöyük in Turkey between 2013 and 2015, and was wearing what appeared to be drilling holes in it. The researchers have carried out macroscopic, microscopic and radiographic analysis of the teeth, in order to confirm that the two teeth were indeed once used as beads or pendants.

In a paper on the research was published in the Journal of Archaeological Science: Reports.

TERRIBLE MYSTERY: THE 8,000 YEAR-OLD SKULL WAS FOUND IMPALED ON THE WOODEN STAKES

“Not only were the two teeth were drilled with a cone-shaped microdrill is similar to that used in the making of huge quantities of beads made from animal bone, and stone, which we have found to be the site, but they, too, showed signs of wear and tear consistent with it’s extensive use as an ornament in a necklace or a bracelet,” said Scott Haddow, the University of Copenhagen as an archaeologist and the paper’s lead author, in a statement.

“The evidence suggests that the two-tooth pendants were most likely obtained from two adult individuals in a post-mortem. The wear and tear of the teeth, the chewing surfaces, this indicates that the individuals would have been between 30-50 years old,” he added.

This is the first time researchers have found evidence of this practice in prehistoric Near East.

“Because of the rarity of the finding, we find that it is very unlikely that the modifications of human teeth, which were solely used for aesthetic purposes, but rather carried a deep symbolic meaning for the people who wore them,” Haddow said.
