SPORT AND RECREATION IN THE ANCIENT WORLD
A study of the nature of sport and recreation in Greece and Rome.  Highlights from ancient Greece will be the Olympic Games, whose im­portance in society far exceeded the athletic events.  In the Roman world the emphasis will be on the spectator sports of gladiatorial contests and chariot racing and their signifi­cance in society.
