The Trojan Horse

Why the Romans and Greeks hate each other:


Odysseus wanted to build a horse. A wooden horse, the most famous trophy in history: The Trojan Horse. The Greeks left the horse in the city of Troy. The Romans took the horse into the heart of the city as a trophy. The Greeks pretended to leave. Little did they know that in the horse was a special force of the Greeks . All 15 of them opened the gates of the city where the Greeks were ready to conquer the city of Troy. The Romans were defeated. 

The Roman Empire though, was more successful.

Tethys the goddess

The Himalayas were formed by the Tethys sea. 

The continents were first divided into Gondwana land in the south and Laurasia in the north. The Indo-Australian plate then broke off from Gondwana land and the Indian plate crashed into Gondwana land and pushed the geosyncline Tethys sea up, forming the Himalayas.


According to Greek mythology, Tethys is a sea goddess and is the wife of Oceanus. The Tethys sea was named after her by Eduard Seuss.
