Much of what we know about ancient Greece comes from epic poems, myths, and stories from Homer, who wrote the Odyssey and the Iliad. These are two classic stories that some of you have read. Many of you have also seen movies like Clash of the Titans, Troy, Harry Potter, and Percy Jackson. Hollywood continues to make movies or use elements of Greek literature in their stories or characters. Check out the links on fables and myths on the right side of the blog under ‘Ancient Greece.’ These are great links: heroes and gods and goddesses in ancient Greece.
