5.0 out of 5 stars Very enlightening
Mayor takes into account the vast amount of prehistoric animal remains and links them to mythology very convincingly. I thoroughly enjoyed it and now I look at myths, legends and fabulous creatures in a very different light. Fasicnating.

3.0 out of 5 stars fascinating area of history
Just what did ancient people think when they discovered the bones of a dinosaur, or the skull of a mammoth? Mayor sets out to answer that question, and discovers myths of dragons, griffins, and ancient heroes five metres tall. But also signs that ancient people tried to explain these extinct megafauna using natural explanations, like floods and earthquakes.

This review is from: The First Fossil Hunters: Dinosaurs, Mammoths, and Myth in Greek and Roman Times (Paperback)
Reading this at the moment, having read Fossil legends of the First Americans already. It would seem the dark and middle ages set us back a long way in research and understanding of Earths past. What I've read so far is very intriguing.
