Ancient Egypt was one of the most fascinating lands in history.There were over two thousands names of gods in Egypt.They say that in Egypt the father of all gods was Ra, the Sun God . They also had two guardian gods named Anubis and Thoth. Thoth was the guardian of knowledge, writing, magic and the moon. Anubis was the guardian of death, mummification, embalming, the afterlife, cemeteries, tombs and the underworld. That is why you will find the statue of the Anubis in many Egyptian tombs.
