SPLASH! 10,000 Years of Swimming covers the history of swimming from the days of ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome as well as during the Dark Ages and Middle Ages to the Renaissance and modern-day Olympic Games. The new book by well-published Howard Means tells many stories of history’s renowned feats of speed or stamina, and how swimming has influenced religion, fashion, architecture, sanitation and public health, colonialism, segregation and integration, sexism over the millennia.
