Storyboard Text

  • Yum yum
  • According to legend, king Minos ruled Athens and forced the Athenians to deliver seven youths and seven maidens every nine years.
  • YAY
  • They became prey of the Minotaur in the labyrinth
  • Have I forgotten something?
  • Theseus travelled to Crete as part of the youths to be sacrificed, but he killed the Minotaur and found his way out of the labyrinth by following a ball of string that he had unravelled behind him.
  • NOOOOOOO!!!!!!
  •  Exiting then became a simple matter of following the thread backwards towards his freedom.
  •  Theseus sailed back to Athens forgetting in his elation to replace the black sails with white ones as a signal of victory.
  • His father Aegean who was watching for the returning ships from the Sounio rock saw the black sail, and in despair for what he thought was a failed mission that resulted to the death of his son, ended his life by jumping into the sea.
