Heroes of Greek Legend

When referring to ancient Greece, historians are generally speaking about a time period of around 2,000 to 4,000 years ago—a time when mythology was used to explain natural wonders, and legends were told from person to person rather than written down. The hero figures of this time remain archetypal figures, and their images continue to impact our world today.
