The Olympics in Ancient Greece
By Mike Rappaport

With the Olympics starting this week in Athens, many people are interested in how the original Olympics functioned in Ancient Greece. The Teaching Company has two lectures on this subject by Jeremy McInerney of the University of Pennsylvania, available for free on their web site. While I haven't listened to them yet, I have listened to 48 lectures by McInerney on Ancient Greece, which were pretty good.
