  1. In one or two sentences explain what hero cult was. (If you need reminding, watch the videoed lecture for this week again).
  2. Choose a modern hero, real or fictional, of any gender. This could be someone well known (e.g. Greta Thunberg or Black Panther) or not well known (e.g. a family member who is a role model to you). Compare and contrast their qualities to the qualities displayed by ancient heroes (e.g. they are brave, compassionate, or strong). Your response should be between 300 and 350 words and make four points of comparison and/or contrast.
