We thought about which features of the Olympics have changed and what have stayed the same since the games began, including the fact that the warring city states would come together in peace for the Olympics – in the same way that lots of countries have set aside their differences for the Russian World Cup.

We played a board game to help us think about the Ancient Olympics.
