Description The paper was evaluating the role of physical fitness during the Cretan Bronze Age, particularly during the Neopalatial Period (MM III - LM IB). Depictions of activities, which we today understand as sports (in particular running, boxing, wrestling, acrobatic performances, and bull-leaping), are usually connected with dancing scenes, ritual practices, and what we contemporarily call “free-time-activities.”
