Herodotus: The Sacred Animals of Ancient Egypt

Sacred Animal in Ancient Egypt

This is Bertie, and I’m here with some more from Herodotus, the father of history who lived 2,500 years ago.  Herodotus was a Greek who liked to travel.  He went around much of the Persian Empire, including Egypt, and wrote down what he saw.  A fair bit of what we know about life in Ancient Egypt comes to us from Herodotus.
