Overview

Young learners can discover the story behind the games we play like never before as we examine the amazing peculiarities of international sport and leisure activities past and present. Readers will learn about the wacky and often bloodthirsty games that our ancestors liked such as fierce gladiatorial contests, as well as the even wackier that are still used around the world today - such as bog snorkelling and bungee jumping!
