Apart from being so well-known, it is also very well hidden. No one knows what happened during these mysteries, and due to that, it has become a controversial topic in many discussions. For this very reason, I wanted to go back. My main idea behind choosing this time and setting was to uncover all that is hidden and to abolish all misconceptions. I aimed to unravel the deep secrets and to enlighten my society about one of the world's most well-kept mysteries.
