British Myths and Legends September 7, 2007

Posted by admin in : English/Literacy , trackback

It’s nice to come across a myths & legends resource which showcases stories from Britain. This new site, designed for KS2 &3, features 31 stories including tales of giants, dragons, witches and ghostly apparitions. The site is by the East of England Broadband Network so the current batch of stories mostly originate in that area.

Each story is presented using text, graphics & audio. There’s detailed notes on the origins of the tales, galleries showing real-life photographs of places in the stories, teacher’s pages, a glossary and plenty of other resources.

The site is big on sharing… You can add your own myths and legends to a map of resources. To help you tell your story the site provides a excellent story making tool, a sound and picture gallery and a timeline to place the stories in their historic context.
