CWW: How Athletics Saved Ancient Culture

May 4, 2016 – It’s Classical Wisdom Wednesday, presented by Classical Wisdom Weekly — bringing ancient wisdom to modern minds, every Wednesday morning before your first cup of coffee.

Today we are looking at ancient athletics. They were a cultural staple, but athletics might also have been responsible for handing down a comprehensive timeline of the classical world to us here in the modern age.

Your guide through the classical landscape is Van Bryan, Associate Editor of Classical Wisdom Weekly. You can catch Classical Wisdom Wednesday every week before your first cup of coffee, right here on the History Author Show.
