Although its existence dates back more than 2,000 years, the mysterious world of Ancient Greece lives on today through its captivating pantheon of mythological tales. For countless generations prior to biblical times, the Greeks' tales of superior gods and goddesses were passed down orally by storytellers and interwoven into traditions and cultural philosophies. In 750 B.C., however, a man named Homer decided to write these stories down, thereby crystallizing the rich inheritance of Greek mythology. From Athena and Apollo to Zeus and Aphrodite, the adventures of these humanlike gods and goddesses evolved as the Ancient Greeks sought to find meaning in a world not yet primed for scientific explanations. Featuring comprehensive interviews with renowned Greek scholars, this searching program from The History Channel® looks at where these myths might have originated, and reveals recent archaeological evidence which suggests that some of the myths may have actually taken place.
