An Imagined Girls Night With Katniss Everdeen, Hermione Granger, Bella Swan And Buffy Summers An Imagined Girls Night With Katniss Everdeen, Hermione Granger, Bella Swan And Buffy Summers In celebration of the release of The Hunger Games in theaters, I figured there was no better way to welcome Katniss Everdeen to the pantheon of pop culture heroines, than by imagining what it would be like to be a fly on the wall during Girls Night. Clearly, Carrie Bradshaw was not invited. Buffy: Hi girls!

Medieval castles in Europe were built over a period of more than 500 years - from around 1000 AD to 1550 AD. Indeed they were built so well that many medieval castles (or at the very least their ruins) can still be seen today - a legacy that allows us the privilege of some truly tangible history.

THEOI GREEK MYTHOLOGY, Exploring Mythology & the Greek Gods in Classical Literature & Art

The Theoi Project profiles each deity and creature of Greek Mythology on a separate page, incorporating an encyclopedia summary, quotations from a wide selection of ancient Greek and Roman texts, and illustrations from ancient art. Analysis of the texts and interpretation of the stories of myth is currently beyond the scope of the project. For such detailed analysis, I would suggest consulting some of the good books available on the subject. Transliterated forms of Greek names are used throughout the biography pages of the site rather than their Latin forms, e.g. Kirke instead of Circe, Ouranos for Uranus, Apollon in place of Apollo, etc.
