These well-known naked men, according to official history, ran at the ancient Olympic Games almost 3 thousand years ago. But in fact, of course, this is another fake. There were Olympic Games, but together with Antiquity they were pushed back into the past for a couple of millennia. And our favorite historians did it, they cannot watch these videos, go into a binge or quit right after watching.

And what? Is it that hard? Throw one, two, or three thousand years? The paper will endure everything. One of the most striking examples of such fake antiquity is the death of the famous city of Pompeii, which we have already talked about in this video … So. They write a lot and colorfully about the ancient Olympic Games. They write convincingly. Names of champions, statues and religious cults, mention of kings, names of cities, details of events. However, in the official version of the history of the Olympic Games everything is false - dates, geography, frequency. Let's deal with another historical forgery. And let's start with such an inconvenient fact as the medieval protests of the 15th century against the prohibition of games.

Yes Yes. It was at the end of the 15th century, as we would say now, that the local intelligentsia began to criticize the ban on the Olympic Games and advocated their resumption. Obviously, the “great humanists” did not advocate the renewal of the tradition, which was interrupted in some shaggy year a thousand hundred years ago, but for the abolition of the ban on games, which had just come out of the pen of the new emperor of the Holy Roman Empire. After all, just all antiquity was written off from this Empire, we talked about this in these two issues, all links will be under the video.

One of the first attempts to revive the concept of the Olympic Games was undertaken by the Italian Renaissance statesman Matteo Palmieri, life years 1405-1475, referring to the ideas of the ancient world in his treatise, written in 1450, where he argued with the church and feudal authorities. He was opposed by his compatriot and contemporary, physician and historian of physical education, Jerome Mercurialis, who opposed games (that is, apparently supporting the authorities in banning them) in his work "De arte gymnastics". In 1516, the lawyer Johannes Aquilla organized his Olympic Games in Baden. In protest of the ban and in an attempt to renew the glorious tradition in a new place.

English playwright Thomas Kid - years of life 1544-1590 - actively showed scenes from the history of Olympism from the stage. Generally speaking, itinerant theaters of the 16th century, showing scenes from Olympic competitions, reproduced what everyone saw with their own eyes in their youth or childhood. In an extreme case, something that still living eyewitnesses, eyewitnesses of older generations could tell them, and not something that humanity has not seen for a thousand years.

With the support of King James I of England, the Crown Prosecutor Robert Dover organized a series of competitions in 1604 called the Olympic Games. Anyone could participate in the competitions of athletes, wrestlers, horsemen, regardless of gender and class. The games were accompanied by a kind of "cultural program" that included hunting, dancing, singing, music, and chess.

The competition has become very popular and has been held for almost 100 years. It is clear that the outbreak of debate and attempts to revive the tradition of the Olympic Games since the mid-15th century is indicative of the real end of the official games.It is hard to believe that out of nowhere, after a thousand years, they began to discuss whether, as we would say now, the ban on holding mass events imposed by the ancient ancient emperors is fair. Now let's see where these legendary antique games took place?

Historians of the 19th century have narrowed the concept of Olympia to a small village, near which one of the ancient stadiums was excavated. A couple of streets and a couple of hotels for tourists, which, in fact, are the only source of income for local residents. A hundred and fifty years ago it was very quiet and deserted here.

No one bothered the local shepherds, except for a few odd diggers with shovels who spoke German. The locals themselves had no idea what historical place they were lucky enough to be born in and what easy money fate would bring them in the near future.
