to Myth Mad

I have always been intrigued by mythology. And since completing a BA, and then an MA, at the Open University, I have found myself fascinated on a deeper level. Many of these musings are about Ancient Greek Mythology, but you will also find modern mythologies as found in modern popular culture. Such as the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), the world of Tolkien, and such fab Netflix fare as The Vampire Diaries and The Originals. There also stuff on the Gothic, Ancient Egypt, and other random things that catch my eye. Welcome !
