|The Olympics & other Pastimes - the British Museum
|Sunday, 14th Apr 2024, 2-4pm
|Dr William Sterling is again leading a tour for us at the British Museum, those of you who have been before, know how fascinating they always are so do book your tickets early, numbers limited to 20.
With the Olympics Cycle getting back to normal this year with the Games in Paris, this tour will look at the Original Olympic Games but also other Sports, Games and Pastimes over the last 4,000 years of World History. From the "Royal Game of Ur" one of the oldest board games in the world, through Roman Gladiator fights, Mediaeval Chess and Theatre and Dance in the Eighteenth century, we will look at the huge variety of ways our ancestors found to amuse and delight themselves when not working.
