    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    This book places the phenomenon of sports and games in its philological, archeological, and art historical context, and examines its connections to cultural and social history. The temporal scope extends from Tacitus' mention of dice games to courtly falconry and includes the culture of games among 17th century Swedish miners. The thematic spectrum includes among others dice and board games and the chivalrous septem probitates (seven skills).
