Definition

The (Czechoslovakian) wolf bone is a wolf bone dating from approximately $30 \ 000$ years ago, bearing $57$ marks which appear to have been made deliberately.

It was discovered in 1937 in Czechoslovakia at Dolní Věstonice in Moravia, by a team led by Karl Absolon.


The markings are believed to be tally marks, and are arranged in $11$ groups of $5$, with $2$ left over.

The untestable hypothesis has been made that the number corresponds to a double lunar period.
