Monsters from Different Cultures

In my initial research into monsters I have focused on three main time periods/cultures.

Greek Mythology  – Myths taught by the ancient Greeks,  12th-9th centuries BC to the end of antiquity (c. 600 AD)

Norse Mythology  – Mythology of the North Germanic people stemming from Norse paganism and continuing into the Scandinavian folklore of the modern period.

Traditional Chinese Mythology -myths found in the historical geographic area of China, including myths in Chinese and other languages.
