Summary, etc.: Perhaps the most compelling Greek myths are those of creatures like the one-eyed cyclops and the ferocious half-lion, half-eagle griffin. Follow a group of paleontologists as they explore newly-translated evidence and examine remains that just may have inspired the tales of these legendary monsters. Travel to Samos, said to be the site of an Amazon battlefield, and analyze the gigantic bones found there.
