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.

We are pleased to announce that our site was the site of the day as featured by MSN on April 18, 1998. We would like to thank MSN for the recognition.

We have derived our information from the numerous sources listed below.
