Greek mythology

The oldest recordings of Greek mythology go back to somewhere between 700-850 BC, when Hesiod (the Theogony, the Works and Days) and Homer (the Iliad, the Odyssey) are believed to be active. There are of course suggestions that Homer might be even older, around 1200 BC, the same time as Trojan war. Anyway, the general belief and all the myths, that were passed from generation to generation through oral tradition, probably goes way beyond that time and cannot even be measured by science. And people all around the world are still learing it to this day and many of these people used it in their own researches and works throughout different generations.
