With mythology bring in big audiences to TV (Thor and Loki in the MCU or American Gods on Amazon as two examples) as well as video games (Assassins Creed Odyssey, God of War), there seems like no better time to learn more about the stories cultures grew up on. Mythology often shows us how long dead cultures viewed the world around them and allowed them to comprehend forces they did not yet understand.
