Greek Mythology: A Traveler's Guide -Monday, July 11, 2016
Greek myths are more than just important stories; the epic tales are rooted in the Mediterranean itself. That's the philosophy of author David Stuttard whose new book Greek Mythology: A Traveler's Guide from Mount Olympus to Troy explores Greece through myth. From 'must see' cities like Athens and Ephesus to less-explored places like Ithaca, Argos and Mount Pelion, he encourages readers to bring the Greek landscape to life through story. Myths were common currency in the ancient Greek empire, Stuttard explains. They pervaded nearly all aspects of everyday life.
