Project Idea: Heroes of Myth and Legend

You will find hero legends in cultures all over the world, so for this project, you need to figure out how you want to proceed: zoom in on just one hero or the heroes of just one cultural tradition, or else something across cultures, where you find a way to bring the hero stories of different cultures together in your project.

Research Tip: Wikipedia has all kinds of lists that will be helpful; here are just a few of them: list of culture heroesfolk heroes (scroll down for list in the article), list of Greek mythological heroes, list of Irish mythological figures, heroes in Norse myth and legend, etc. If you are having trouble getting started, let me know what kind of hero stories you are looking for, and I will see if I can find some good jumping-off points at Wikipedia or elsewhere.
