We had a children’s anthology of Greek and Roman myths. Today, I can tell you they were raped Disney versions of the great tales of Hesiod and Ovid. Yes, they sparked my interest in ancient history and archaeology, and molded my capacity for writing dramatic and epic fiction when I was younger. They widened my understanding of the vastness of human belief systems. While I might not have been a little girl pondering the neural networks of ancient Greek brains, performing imaging scans on them now to observe the volume of belief, language, and storytelling regions would be lovely :). Alas. These neurons died with the tales of Zeus.
