The ancient Greeks were the great mythmakers of Europe. Their stories illustrate life's truths using Gods and Goddesses, heroes and villains, oracles, monsters, giants and the forces of nature as the main characters.
Recent archeological discoveries are proving that there is more reality to Greek mythology than previously believed. The Greek Goddess is equal in stature, importance and power to her male counterpart. They are strong and spirited women, each with her own agenda.
The Romans were so impressed with Greek mythology that they assimilated many Greek Goddesses into their own mythology, albeit sometimes with name changes and adaptations to the plots.
