seen in many places today.
One example shown here is
in the movies, like Wrath of the
Titans, Clash of the titans and
Jason and the Argonauts (older
movie). Makhai weak spot Hippolyta In a land called Greece, around 3,000 years ago, there were the Gods, and Goddesses of Mount Olympus. These were to be known in our times as the Olympians. The Olympians consisted of the offspring of the Titan Kronos and his wife Rhea, their family, the titans, also had some of the minor gods and goddesses, and the sons and daughters of the children of Kronos. The gods had many kids in classic mythology and even in modern books like Percy Jackson and the Olympians, The Heroes of Olympus books and in movies like Clash of the Titans, Jason and the Argonauts, and the Lightning Thief. The gods of Olympus were supposed to be how the Greeks explained how nature was made, natural disasters and other scientific stuff. In this Presentation, you will learn about Greek mythology and how it is shown in our culture and Greek Culture. The Greeks also had their mythology placed in the sky where we now get the Constellations. http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/Olympics/
Copy and paste to learn on the Olympic games (They do tie in to mythology!!) Now, you're probably wondering how a bunch of athletic competitions tie in with mythology. Well, do you know that the laurel wreath has mythological roots? (More info in movie titled Research Project:Ancient Greek Mythology.) The word Museum originally
derives from the Greek word
Muse, referring to the nine
muses or goddesses of
music, literature, astrology,
and history. the gods of wind are on Philadelphia's City Hall. One representing each direction, North, East, South and West. Goddess of Plenty
Pompona Mnemosyne teaches the muses of history. Aphrodite - Goddess of Love and Beauty Charioteer of Delphi Gods of Olympus and the Defeat of Typhon. Greek Architecture on Museum of Art Killed by Heracles killed by Perseus killed by Paris
(with Apollo's help) Mythology in Literature Greek Mythology also appears in
modern literature. Rick Riordan is
a great example. He writes mythology in his
kid's series, Percy Jackson and the Olympians and The Heroes of Olympus. The Titans are briefly mentioned in a couple of books like Atlas Shrugged. Intro Now, every family fights, but the Olympian family has the most fights in most mythologies. The titans fought against their father, the titans kids,nephews,nieces all fought against each other, sometimes even demi-gods were rebellious to their parents. Either follow the path, or choose a path from the Mike's Museum.

Greek mythology was an important part of both Greek Culture and ours. mythology in art The Olympian Family Gods and Demi-Gods The gods had many children in the Greek myths. These were called Demi-(half human),Gods (meaning gods, or half immortal deity.) Mythology and Geography a bunch of Greek names from mythology influenced geography of Greece and Europe. For example, Camdus and his sister Europa were flying above an unnamed land when Europa fell of the Golden Ram, later became the golden fleece. Camdus named the country Europe after his fallen sister. See what I mean? Another example is Atlas, when he was "turned to stone" by Perseus, his body fell apart and became the Atlas Mountains in Europe. N E S W underworld

this way Mythological Greece Hercules (Marvel Comics) Marvel Comics also went into Greek mythology. Take Hercules for example. Percy Jackson,
Son of Poseidon Demi-Gods usually turned out to be great heroes. To be a demi-god, one had to have a mortal and immortal parent (according to myth). There are many famous demi-gods. Perseus, Heracles, Achilles, Ajax, and even good old Percy Jackson. Funny thing is, some parts of the family tree include monsters. Like the Giants for example. Sky Follow me last! Reference books -
