Ancient Greek Myths

 

In their effort to understand their environment and the forces of nature, the Ancient Greeks invented stories to account for the things that went on in their lives. These tales, known as myths, were spread around by travelers.

What were Myths about?

They were about gods who controlled the elements of nature. The myths told tales about powerful Olympian gods, sea gods, woodland gods, sky gods, underwater gods, half-gods, human heroes, courageous or romantic adventures, betrayals, battles, wanderings, and so on.
