Ancient Olympia Greece: Ancient Olympic Games

Ancient Olympia Greece: Ancient Olympic Games | neolithic | Scoop.it

The Ancient Olympic Games were organised in Ancient Olympia Greece and, therefore, named after their location. It is not quite clear when they began, however, there are records dating 776 BC. They took place every four years for more than a millennium. This four-year cycle was referred to as “Olympiad”, and was used as a date system. Time was not counted in years but in Olympiads.

This article, mentions that Greece is where Olympic Games were orginated from. These games were created to worship tne Gods and to represent their strengths. These games were first made for a peace treaty but then became a culture event for all greeks to do.

in this artice,  they try to study the way the Romans created this Aqueducts 

Cynia Sapp's curator insight, March 4, 1:50 PM

The mission was for Vicovaro and his team to go down access wells and clamber through crevices to access.These eleven aqueducts were built in ancient Rome, which still run for hundreds of kilometers underground. It is interesting how modernized this system was. You wonder how long this took to build the aqueducts to build, considering the limited technology they had. This provides evidence of their engineering skills.

abigail's insight:

17 of the world heritage monuments dedicated to represent a lost or present civilization are from ancient greece. with this we understand that the Greeks were very handy at what they dedicated themselves to do..all their money spent on building monuments and temples wasn't in vain for they have earned the western civilizations admiration in many ways they have influenced us especially through their classical period from their art, government, writing, plays, and trading, to be simple.

abigail's insight:

ancient civilizations have changed throughout time their habits to the day of today..men have become more civilized and tend to leave things behind, such as this ritual where the dogs were buried alongside their masters and were killed once their masters dies, maybe this is where we get the saying a dog is mans best friend..
