Archaeologists Discover A New Profession In An Ancient Egyptian Woman's Teeth

"Individual teeth may seem to the untrained eye like an extraneous part of a larger burial. But placed into the context of a skeleton and a past culture, as Lovell and Palichuk have done, even tiny marks on a handful of teeth can reveal a hidden world whose surface archaeologists have so far have only scratched."

A mysterious species related to humans has been discovered

"But what makes luzonensis different from other species? It's all in the distinct premolar teeth, which vary considerably from anything identified in the other species belonging to the Homo genus." Teeth are often the identifier for different species from humans to animals and especially dinosaurs!

https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/10/world/new-hominin-discovery-philippines-scn/index.html

Ancient bones and teeth found in Callao Cave in the Philippines have led to the discovery of a previously unknown hominin called Homo luzonensis, according to a study. The fossils belonged to two adults and one child who lived between 50,000 and 67,000 years ago.
