Mythology refers variously to the collected myths of a group of people or to the study of such myths.

A folklore genre, myth is a feature of every culture. Many sources for myths have been proposed, ranging from personification of nature or personification of natural phenomena, to truthful or hyperbolic accounts of historical events to explanations of existing rituals. A culture's collective mythology helps convey belonging, shared and religious experiences, behavioral models, and moral and practical lessons.

Other Myths

As I've gone through this page, though the main info seems sound, most of the comments seem directed towards Greek/Roman and Egyptian Myths, which have been done to death. I, personally find other mythological systems more interesting- such as Norse and Celtic mythologies. Here is a book on Norwegian (Norse) Trolls. Quite comical, while still educational.
