Blog: Ancient and Modern Olympics


With the 2012 Olympic Games coming up this summer in London, now is a great time to study both the ancient and modern games with your Greek and Latin students. Here is a good resource to get started: Ancient and modern Olympics is a blog written by Dr Jason K├Ânig, who teaches Greek in the School of Classics, University of St Andrews. The blog has been running from March 2012. It offers among other things translations of texts related to the ancient Olympics festival and ancient Greek athletics generally, with a particular focus on texts which have something to tell us about the connections and the gaps between ancient and modern sport.
