Ancient Greece

Ancient Greece - The content of this website includes 8 total sub-subjects, which include Geography, Mythology, People, Culture & Society, Olympics, Wars,History, and Art & Architecture. All of these 8 sub-subjects have a hearty description of itself, about 6-8 paragraphs. Anirudh V.
Mythology - My first impression of the website was that it was interesting, and worth my time. A family tree of the gods and titans greet you immediately, and next to it, there are some links to more information on some characters. As you scroll down, small subheadings provide information about important Greek characters. Ashley Z.
MythWeb - The creators of this website used a lot of imagination while making it. There are funny, interactive pictures that explain what each god or hero does and who they are. There is useful information and links that lead you to more content about myths and legends. The content is well written and helpful on this project. I would recommend it to students doing Greek Mythology. Good luck!Natasha N.
