Greek Mythology

Greek Mythology told in a much different manner than when I was in school. Check out Achilles' page, where you can play the Iliad game. Test your knowledge of the epic story. The illustrated Cupid and Psyche story is...interesting.

Does anyone know a good (and free) site for Latin lessons?

There are lotsa Latin language resources. Most people get their exposure from one of the many online versions of Wheelock's Latin. Once you get comfortable, you can test out your skills on the Nuntii Latini; brush up on current events and study Latin at the same time. Or maybe you might wanna read "Winnie Ille Pu" (Winie the Pooh) in Latin.

Thanks for the links, RavinDave. What do you Latinists think of the Harry Potter books now being translated into Latin by an eminent scholar? One classicist, Peter Jones, in the current Spectator, is against it.

Check out Myth Man's Myth of the Month for radically entertaining versions of the Greek Myths written in modern style. Also for his homework help.

The Iliad game works not at all in IE 5.1 on OS X.
