    A Quantitative Analysis of Pausanias' Testimony on Athletic Statues at Olympia part of QuIRK:Curricular Materials:Quantitative Writing:Examples
    This page authored by Jorge Bravo, Carleton College, based on an original activity by Jorge Bravo, Carleton College.
    Students read an ancient account of the statues of athletes at Olympia and extract from it a set of data presented in a spreadsheet. After analyzing the data using tables, graphs, and maps, the students use quantitative reasoning combined with qualitative arguments to write a paper about how Pausanias' account of the statues reflects both his own biases and the cultural norms of ancient Greek athletics.
