The earth is the foundation of all Greek mythology, for it was the abundance of the earth that caused the birth of the sky and the formation of the universe. This program begins in Eleusis, one of the oldest sanctuaries dedicated to Demeter and site of the Eleusinian Mysteries. We learn about Triptolemus, who taught mortals the art of agriculture, and visit Thessaly-home to the myth of Deucalion and Pyrrha, the Greek version of Noah's Ark. We hear stories about Charon, and about Persephone's reunion with her mother at Eleusis-whose stones are the silent witnesses to the ancient rites of spring and the orgies of autumn.
