This site is designed for the use of Classical Mythology students at Calvin College. The purpose of this page is to introduce students to the myths and the places of ancient Greece. One of our main goals is to give "faces" to the locations and names of mythology and to reinforce the fact that ancient myth was closely tied to real places in space and time.

This site does not present new or original research and is not suited as a source for papers or research. Rather, it is intended as a tool to add flavor and color to the myths you will read for this class.

These pages were created by Joe Stubenrauch, working under the supervision of Prof. Mark Williams at Calvin College, funded by a McGregor Fellowship. We would like to thank Professor Mark Williams, Dean Ward, the McGregor Fund, the Calvin ITC staff, and Professor Ken Bratt for their kind help and assistance in this project.

We welcome your input and ideas and would also appreciate hearing about any errata found on these pages. We suggest reading "Using this Site" before preceding to the individual tours. If you want to begin the tours right away, click on "Home" from the menu to get started.
