Day & Time: Thursday 10:15-11:25
Mentor: Jon Alston
From the Ancient Greeks to the Norse Gods, from Elves to pixies to werewolves and vampires, we’ll explore all the parts of the mythological and fantastical worlds we all love! We’ll tackle Gods and Titans, we’ll toil with Alchemists and early Doctors, we’ll see how the view of the world changed through the centuries. This class is all about the ancient stories we told each other to help us understand the world around us, and how these stories can and do relate to our world today.
