The Minotaur is one of the most famous monsters from Greek mythology. This ferocious creature, half-human and half-bull, lived in the Labyrinth. Built by master inventor Daedalus, the Labyrinth was a dark, gloomy maze of passageways that twisted and turned so much that it was impossible for the Minotaur to ever find its way out. But if the monster was imprisoned, so were the innocent girls and boys who were placed inside the Labyrinth as food for the Minotaur. Once inside the Labyrinth, these youths could not escape. Inevitably, the Minotaur found them and ate them. Into this grisly hall of death comes a young hero named Theseus. He has vowed to kill the Minotaur, or die trying. But he has no weaponsóhe only has a ball of string! Will Theseus kill the Minotaur . . . or will he be its next victim? Find out what happened to Theseus and the Minotaur, and about their legacy.
