Welcome to The Ancient Greeks podcast series by Cambridge For Kids. This seventh episode looks at Greek Mythology. Thousands of years ago people did not have sciences like we have today to help them understand life. Ancient Greek people could see sickness, death, and natural disasters, but they did not understand what caused them. Mythology in the ancient world was used as a way to explain these things which contained monsters, bizarre beasts, and the gods.
