From the cover: “Sporting events unite people and can have as much a political as a competitive motivation. This can certainly be said of the English Olimpick games, first played in 1612 on a small hill in the Cotswolds. These games stood as testament to the ordinary people of England in their fight against the Puritan movement and ran almost continuously for more than two-hundred years.”
