Archaeology that makes me squee!!!

Today my class took a test the first half of class, so I did some reading to prep questions about the other textbook I assigned: Daily Life in Ancient Egypt
This resulted in the following gems:

The Metropolitan Museum of Art - Feeding Cup
Why, yes, that is an ancient baby sippy-cup. And it is awesome.

The other thing was this:
...white dogs with large black spots make a regular appearance in Middle Kingdom tombs as pets, and even as guardian deities...
Yup, totally a guardian deity.
