In different parts of the world, the word dragon carries different connotation. Some claim the creature is an evil being sent by the Great Evil to harm mankind. Others tell tales about benevolent dragons who sacrificed themselves to save humans or promote fertility. Both disaster and bounty have followed in their wakes.
In the modern world, dragons have spread as a wild fire; both through the internet and through books, they've grown. Out of all the creatures in mythology, the dragon is one of the most present. Where did this creature come from? Why do so many mythologies tell the tale of at least one dragon?
This site is here to help you unlock the mystery of the dragon, and I hope it can be informative as well as entertaining. To begin, select one of the menu items from the side bar on the right.
