Ancient Egyptians were some of the most religious people to inhabit the Earth.

In this list, we’ve dug up – well, not literally; we’ll leave that for the archaeologists and grave robbers – these fascinating facts about the Ancient Egyptian gods and religious systems. Religion in Ancient Egypt wasn’t so different from religion today with its focus on doing good and earning a place in the afterlife.

Egyptian gods often had both human and animistic traits, making them quite memorable and recognizable.
