Do you wish to know how the thunder-god Thor recaptured his hammer? The Icelandic version of the tale can be found in The Poem of Thrym. Or, maybe you might like to know of The Maiden Stone of Bennachie, a mythic story from Scotland. And buying tangentially into all the hoopla surrounding The Da Vinci Code, maybe you would like to learn about The Black Madonna, as told in Italy.
Those stories and tales, and others from across Europe, are all found at A Europe of Tales. Sit down at the computer with your kids and broaden both your own horizons and theirs. These stories and tales have been around a very long time, often for lessons about life still applicable to the present.
