EVOLUTION OF MYTH


Hey everyone! Welcome to our wikipage! We will be going over myth and how it has evolved over time around the world in four different types of myth: Womens' Role in myth, Santa Claus, The construct of the family, and funerals.

Since the beginning myth has played an important role in the lives of humanity, but the myths of the Neolithic period greatly differ from our myths today. In Karen Armstrong's novel A Short History of Myth, she explains how the sky gods are no longer relevant to current humans and have died out. Myths must change or "evolve" to fit the current society's ideas and beliefs, or the myth will suffer the same fate as the sky god's and no longer exist other than in history books.
