This month we have a tablet-only exclusive: an article by Mihir Bose on the origins of the modern Olympic Games, and how they were influenced by a 19th-century English novel.
Also in this issue: Richard Rhodes explores the history of power transition and how oil came to be king; Simon Andre Stirling scrutinises the troubled history of King Arthur and the Church; Jos Damen describes the contribution of two unusual Dutch citizens to Africa's Gold Coast; Toby Lincoln examines China's historic embrace of urbanism; and David Gribble draws parallels between the modern Olympics and the games of 416 BC.
