Description

From women bull-jumping in Minoan Crete and ancient Sparta -- where girls wrestled in the nude alongside boys -- to women competing in full armour in chariot races, this book presents ancient women as much more than sisters, wives, and mothers. Focusing on an area that has long been dominated by men, this book documents women's participation in the ancient Greek world of sports in an effort to reconstruct and present a full and equitable picture of women in history as capable, independent thinkers and valuable contributors to ancient Greek society. Included is a complete list gathered from ancient texts, inscriptions, art, and artefacts of women winners and the festivals and events in which they were victorious.
