The Myth Nerd Story – Everything You’d Possibly Want to Know!

I have always been interested in mythology. From a very early age in Britain, I was known to sit at the breakfast table reading encyclopedias about many of the major world mythologies. In truth I found the Norse and Egyptian mythology the most fascinating, but there was always something unique and intriguing about each world mythology.

As I grew up, I began to read more seriously around the topics and much of my free time was spent travelling to some of the more important locations from the myths. I have been to much of Greece, Scandinavia, Egypt and I now live in China.

It was with all this in mind that I bought the Myth Nerd domain in early 2020. I had found myself with a great deal more time on my hands and wanted to begin writing about some of the more interesting aspects of some of the myths.

There is a great deal of information on the interest about mythology, but it is often badly presented or missing key elements. This website is my humble attempt to fill in some of the gaps.

The plan from here is to write content answering some of the more common questions on mythology, and to write helpful guides to topics I find to be undeserved and personally interesting.

I make no promise that I won’t make some mistakes along the way, so with that being said, I welcome you to give feedback on the website.

Thanks for taking the time to visit Myth Nerd.
