    It is a little-known fact that the first English Olympics took place on a Cotswold hillside in 1612. This brief history tells a swashbuckling tale of athletes in doublets and hose who cocked a snook at the Puritans to compete at sword-fighting, shin-kicking, gurning and climbing the greasy pole, and celebrates the modern revival of this uniquely English event.
