Sites I Like--Theoi Project
Theoi Project is a site I've used quite a bit for story research, inspiration, and simple enjoyment. The site provides a free reference guide to characters, creatures, and gods from Greek mythology. Images from ancient art, encyclopedic summaries that include reference citations, and a library of ancient texts present a comprehensive picture of wide ranging mythological topics. I love that so much is compiled in one place, and because I'm a visual learner, I find the combination of images and descriptive text particularly useful.
