about

In this engaging and lively account, Catherine Beale tells the story of the Wenlock Olympian Games, considers their influence on the modern Olympics, and shows why Coubertin, though he failed fully to credit Brookess contribution to the movement, concluded that 'The Wenlock people alone have preserved and followed the true Olympian traditions.'
