Ancient Egypt

Ancient Egypt was a civilization of ancient Northeastern Africa, concentrated along the lower reaches of the Nile River in the place that is now the country Egypt. It is one of six historic civilizations to arise independently. Egyptian civilization followed prehistoric Egypt and coalesced around 3100 BC (according to conventional Egyptian chronology) with the political unification of Upper and Lower Egypt under Menes (often identified with Narmer). The history of ancient Egypt occurred as a series of stable kingdoms, separated by periods of relative instability known as Intermediate Periods: the Old Kingdom of the Early Bronze Age, the Middle Kingdom of the Middle Bronze Age and the New Kingdom of the Late Bronze Age.

Millions of Dog Mummies Discovered in Catacombs of Anubis

Pictured is Anubis with the head of a jackal and the god of mummification. Archaeologists have discovered nearly 8 million canine mummies from extremely young puppies to mature dogs next to a temple of Anubis. While 92% of the mummified remains belonged to dogs, the excavation team also found jackals, foxes, falcons (probably for interchangeability reasons) and even cats and mongooses (probably for mythological reasons)
