Fact of the Day: Anubis and Osrsis

Anubis was an important god in Egyptian mythology. His importance was great when it came to the after-life as he was considered the Lord of the Underworld, he would usher in spirits to the next world, and judge those if they were worthy to enter the after-life. However Anbis' importance faded over the centuries as eventually Osiris became far more important and even replaced him as the Lord of the Underworld.

  4. I've read that Anubis, the god with the head of a jackal, derived from people spotting wild dogs and jackals digging up bodies buried in the sand.
