A Visitor’s Guide to the Ancient Olympics

A Visitor’s Guide to the Ancient Olympics

Think about ancient Greece for a moment. What comes to mind? Spartans, Homer’s songs (The Iliad and The Odyssey), and of course, the Olympics. The ancient Olympics and the modern Olympics are not one and the same. This wonderful new book allows you to transport yourself back to the year 388 BC and experience this thrilling event as close to first hand as possible 2,400 years later. It combines the excitement of the sport with the context of the culture of the time, in a wonderfully accessible read made all the more vibrant with great images, both black & white and color, throughout. Come get this book before I buy up every copy!
