Hi Jim,

There are a lot of differences but I'm not familiar enough with Chinese mythology to be able to tell you exactly what they are. I know that mythical creatures like dragons and vampires are totally different in British mythology from how they are in Chinese mythology. The earliest known British legend is the story of Beowulf, which you can find online in modern English translation. In the middle ages (1154-1485), storytelling flourished. There were countless tales of the heroic adventures of brave knights. Popular legends such as Robin Hood and King Arthur originally come from this period of history and you can find books and films about them, all of which tell the story slightly diffrently.

Andrew
