A Moment in History: The Kraken

by ian

The ocean is an unsettling place, and humans have often turned to mythological stories as a way to make sense out of the turbulence of the sea. While many of those tales are little more than folklore, some legends are based on aspects of truth. One of the most terrifying of these is the beast of the waters that was said to crush whole ships in its grip.  Known in ancient days as the Kraken, it is known today by another name.
