This collection of sixteen thematically linked articles was inspired by the Sydney Olympic Games of 2000. Its international cast includes leading authorities in the study of ancient Greek sport. It considers how sport and festival affected the ancient Greek city and how the values of athletics pervaded Greek culture. To accompany the main focus, on the ancient world, the book examines allied topics of modern culture, such as the sometimes troubled relationship between research on ancient Greek sport and the modern Olympic movement, and the question how museums may best present to a modern public the surviving Greek artefacts linked with sport.Phillips, David is the author of 'Sport and Festival in the Ancient Greek World' with ISBN 9780954384517 and ISBN 0954384512.
