Professor Ken Dowden delivered the Birmingham and Midlands Classical Association's New Year lecture on 30 January 2014.

  • Where do Greek myths come from? 
  • How, and when, are they created? 
  • What is the point of them?
  • Why haven't they passed away like the Ancient Greeks themselves?
  • Are there modern 'mythologies' in the same sense as Greek mythology?
