About This Quiz

Ancient mythology follows the lives of the gods and goddesses who looked out over the world of humans, often creating obstacles and hardships for those who praised them and their enemies. 

Whether Egyptian, Roman, Greek, Norse or anywhere else in the world, mythology may have actually been based on real histories whose lives were later blown into epic stories. Mythology tries to answer the curiosities of the world, nature and why people behave. They attempted to explain existence and death. To those who told the stories, it was the meaning of mythological stories that took precedent over the facts and details of a story.
