A Strange History Of Dog-Headed Men

Perhaps one of the stranger creatures to pop up in ancient traveler's tales is the dog-headed man. Seemingly an absurd and unlikely beast to be sure, such creature have nevertheless been prevalent and persistent in a wide range of writings throughout history.

Stories of purported dog-headed men go back well into history. Mostly referred to as the Cynocephali, these were typically described as essentially humans with the head of a dog, and they feature heavily in stories going across cultures throughout the world.
