Ancient Greece

Ok, let's get away from all this boring (and controversial) political stuff :P and have a look at some REAL history...

An Australian colleague has drawn my attention to the following website.

Winged Sandals: Many teachers may find this site interesting, especially in view of the forthcoming Olympics. It's a delightful multimedia website on Greek Mythology created by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation in association with The University of Melbourne's Centre for Classics and Archaeology. The website is designed for children 6-12 but will certainly have a much wider appeal: http://www.wingedsandals.com

Could Atlantis have been a part of today's Santorini?

Santorini Eruption and The Legend of Atlantis

"In the modern era, geologic and archeological investigations hint at an intriguing possibility -- that the demise of Atlantis may be related to a catastrophic Bronze Age eruption in the Aegean Sea, which generated a flooded caldera and destroyed an advanced Minoan civilization living on the island group of Santorini..."

Cig,

Could be!!!

I clicked on the link provided in Post#1, and it said it was unavailable. So searching to see if Herodotus ( I am very fond of him, and figured he did) had anything to say about Atlantis,(because most is attributed to Plato), I came upon this:

Have you read any of his writings on the Delphian Oracle?

Thanks, Kath, great info!!!

I've always been interested in the Atlantis and Mu myths.

Have you read any of his writings on the Delphian Oracle?

No, I haven't...

If you've any free time between now and the beginning of school, it might be a good time to write a paper of some sort. Guess I'll have to do the same--however, Herodotus' writings on Babylon are quite good, and I may have to write on Delphi here and then start a Babylonian thread for the other.

Kathy,

Yes, I have time but I'm not good at putting my thoughts down on a paper.

But I'll gladly read what you will have to write.

Email me a copy when you finish it.
