Let's Have Our Own Ancient Greek Olympic Games


History should be Fun!

What could be more fun than competing with other families, or friends, while you reenact Classical Greece with competitions, prizes, and fun? You might want to name your teams after Greek city-states like we did.

Does the thought of setting up and running Olympic Games overwhelm you? Don’t worry about a thing. Laura and Meredith have enjoyed Ancient Greek Olympic Games with their own children and homeschool co-op. They will walk you step-by-step through the process of planning and hosting your own historical event.

This book contains information on the original Olympic Games held at Mount Olympia near Elis, including information on the different events. Merey and Laura give you suggestions for serious competitive events, as well as not-so-serious events that will have everyone laughing.

The planning process is broken down to sizeable portions with suggestions on how to set up a field.

This will make a great addition to your study of Ancient History, or a great finale to a related unit study.

    Original electronic
    Scanned image
    These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

    For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

    For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
    Original electronic format
    These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
