Olympic Games: Prehistory, Antiquity, and Revival

Click on the links to learn about the history of the Olympic games in prehistory and ancient Greece as well as their revival for the modern day. Prehistory offers evidence of Olympic-type games from Minoan Crete, Myceneans, the Homeric Age, Polis, and Olympia. Click on the links at the side for topography, a short description of the monuments at ancient Olympia, 3-D reconstructions of some of the most important buildings in ancient Olympia (be sure to look at the Temple of Zeus), famous contests in ancient Greece. Don't miss the first-person account of Ariston, an athlete from the first Olympic games in Olympia.

"I love and enjoy using My eCoach because of the large number of resources, the user-friendliness of the components, the excellent timely support and the highly functional, professional looking 'finished product.' For my students (members of a team that is available here) My eCoach provides a safe, yet authentic web experience unlike any I have found available anywhere else.

This is a GREAT 21st-century learning tool!"
