No serious work has been carried out at the North Saqqara Catacombs of Anubis, known since the late 19th Century, before Dr Paul Nicholson’s present project. The re-mapped galleries have been re-interpreted and the number of animals they might have held is very much higher than previously believed, now thought to number in the millions. This talk reviews the history of the catacomb and the new work carried out there.
