Doggy Mummies

The good folks at National Geographic have finally added some images of the catacombs that some say contain millions of dog mummies dedicated to the god Anubis. The pictures certainly demonstrate why the catacombs probably interested Jacques De Morgan little.

Interesting though in the level of decomposition of the piles of poorly mummified dogs left here in the late period to the late Ptolemaic period.
