This website has expanded over the years, and has become a rally point for World
Mythology. One can navigate this site for hours, browsing, or go to the site
for a specific item and find it with ease. An excellent source for scholarly
research and jump points.

Technical Remarks:

Excellent technical balance. Easy to browse and search. It also links to other
sources as well.
