MythNET has been designed to educate the world about Greek and Roman
mythology through the new medium of the Internet. We have constructed one of the
FIRST fully interactive mythological websites on the Internet. It is our
hope that in future this will encourage and allow teachers to use the Internet
as a tool for teaching their students - not only about mythology - but all
fields of study. MythNET allows anyone from around the world to access
information about Greek and Roman mythology in a fun and interesting manner. And
because of this, it entices the users of this site to research and learn more
information about a particular myth in the study of mythology.
The main authors of this site, Neil Jenkins, Sumair Mirza and Jason Tsang,
hope that you enjoy browsing through this site.
We are pleased to announce that our site has won first place at the 1997
Ontario Students Classics Conference.
