Des chiens momifiés à El-Deir. Oasis de Kharga.

During the last campaigns (2002-2004) carried out at the necropolis at El Deir (Kharga Oasis) by Fr. Dunand and the French team, a significant collection of mummies and skeletons of dogs were discovered inside several human tombs. These tombs, which had been occupied during the Ptolemaic period, were reused for mummified animals. Many of these were carefully wrapped. X-rays identified traces of violent death. So it is obvious that they must have been offered as ex voto to a canine god, Anubis or Wepwawet , whose sanctuary has not yet been discovered in this area.
