Written in the style of a modern travel guide, Neil Faulkner here provides a light-hearted, but informative introduction to the ancient Olympics, bringing to life all of the sights and smells of the games. As well as describing the events themselves he looks at the religious aspects of the games, and also the more practical dimension, painting a picture of a vast unsanitary tent city, alive with hedonism, politics and poetry.
