Useful WWW Resources Related to Greek Myth


This page offers a number of links to sites on the WWW. Remember that anyone can put up a site on the Web, for any purpose, and virtually all WWW sites contain errors (even mine!). Make certain that you employ a responsible source to double-check any facts or assertions that you find on a WWW page.

Students should make a point of reading through Elizabeth Kirk's *Evaluating Information Found on the Internet page. Also useful: How to Evaluate Web Resources (Who's Hosting This?)

NOTE: In general, please do not assume that the material on a page to which I have linked is mine unless the page to which you are directed is clearly marked as being part of this WWW site.
