SCIENTIFIC SHORT FILM “THE MUGE DOG – A PREHISTORIC FRIEND” WINS FIRST PRIZE IN AN INTERNATIONAL CONTEST
“The Muge Dog – a prehistoric friend”, a scientific short film is awarded 1st Prize ex-aequo in Ciencia en Acción 2020, an international contest with the main objective of presenting science in an attractive and motivating way.
 

Ana Elisabete Pires and Catarina Ginja are two of the authors of this film, which is a winner in the category of Science Teaching Materials, Scientific Dissemination and Short Science Films.


“The Muge Dog – a prehistoric friend” is a digital animation that tells the story of a dog who is around 7,600 years old. Its skeleton was found by archaeologists at the end of the 19th century in Muge, Portugal, and has recently been the subject of a detailed study using the most advanced technologies available: radiocarbon dating, isotope analysis, genomics and imagiology, which allowed the interpretation of the dog’s life and death.
