Furrow-carved Mammal Teeth

Teeth obtained from mammals and carved with a circular furrow or ring, presumably for the purpose of wrapping and suspending them from a sinew cord and for use as personal adornment; found in Châtelperronian sites and associated with the presence of Neandertals c. 32-29 kya.

Cf. pierced mammal teeth.
