It came to my attention this past week that Dr Jason Konig from St Andrews has started up an excellent blog devoted to the Ancient and Modern Olympics. It will be featured in our Blogosphere posts from this point on, but I did want you to get a sense of ‘what you’ve missed’:
- Citizenship and athletic victory
- The torch relay and ancient festival envoys
- Why did ancient athletes cover themselves in oil?
- A travelling athlete
- A visitor to the Olympics
- Olympic preparations
