010 - Panhellenism

In this episode, we discuss early Greek religion as formalized by Homer and Hesiod; the development of Panhellenism; and the four predominant Panhellenic sanctuaries of the 8th century BC (Olympia, Delos, Delphi, and Dodona)

ca. 800-700 BC - an increase in religious sanctuaries and shrines led to the building of the earliest temples in all parts of the Greek world
776 BC - traditional date for the first Olympic Games
