Ancient Egyptian Gods and Goddesses
Religion played a very important role in the lives of the Ancient Egyptians. They believed in a wide range of Gods and Goddesses. Each god and goddess had a special power and a specific job to do. For example, Horus was the God of the Sky and his job was to protect and rule Egypt. Thoth was the God of Writing and Knowledge. He gave the Ancient Egyptians the gift of hieroglyphics and taught them how to write.
