Premise
Hercules, Odysseus, Medusa, Zeus -- the names are familiar, as are their myths. Stories of good against evil, they stand the test of time. But in this History Channel series, experts connect the myths we all know to actual historical events, and link the stories to mythologies of other cultures as well. Episodes also focus on Thor, Beowulf, and the labyrinth of the Minotaur.
