The word, “myth” comes from the Greek word, “mythos,” meaning “story.” Just about every culture has its own mythology, with different stories, deities, and creatures. Many cultures have ominous myths, scary looking monsters, and deities that have their own personalities.

“I think maybe Theseus And The Minotaur would be a creepy story,” Mythology teacher Ginger Mills said. “All of the heroes have to face some sort of weird creature or monster.”

Theseus And The Minotaur is the Greek myth of a hero, Theseus, and how he enters the Labyrinth to kill the Minotaur. With the help of Princess Ariadne, he uses a thread to find his way out of the Labyrinth.
