The Olympic Games in the Ancient Hellenic World
Middle Up. Using a homepage metaphor of a museum floorplan, this Website from Dartmouth is an accessible and unusual way to learn about the early Olympics. From 776 BC to 393 AD, thousands of people ceased all warfare every four years, and flocked to a small sanctuary in northwestern Greece for five days in the late summer to witness the Olympic Games. We look in on them here through history, explanations of the contests, anecdotes, and other topics. A section called "The Story of a Competitor" is an engaging fictional memoir of a Corinthian athlete named Xenophon. (Note: Homework Central; Site: Dartmouth College)
