Monsters of the Deep
Did a real creature inspire the myth of the Kraken, one of the greatest sea monsters of all time?
Hundreds of years ago, our ancestors believed that a gigantic sea monster swam in the world’s oceans – the mighty Kraken. This huge sea beast was said to devour men and sink ships that sailed too close. Now investigator biologist Charles Paxton is on the hunt for this terrifying monster of the deep. Did a real sea creature like the giant squid inspire these tales of the Kraken and why do the descriptions of this monster vary so much? The quest to find the Kraken explores our primal fear of the unknown; could the origins of the Kraken myth be a coded warning?
