Enter a world of gods, battles and heroes. Hear the story of Pheidippides and the Battle of Marathon. Be amazed by his feat of heroism and ultimate sacrifice which helped the Greeks to a stunning victory over their traditional enemies, the Persians.See the arms and armour of a hoplite and discover how they were used. Find out for yourself if you are fit enough to run a marathon in full equipment and gain the honour of being both a Greek hero and unwitting founder of a modern Olympic sport.
