O' Pallas Athena, Protectress of the the City !  I begin to sing;

The dreadful one, who with Ares looks after War-like Affairs:

The sacking of cities of battle and the strife. She protects the

populace, wherever they might venture to or from.

Hail goddess and may you give us good fortune and Happiness.

15th Australasian Historical Conference 2009 Sydney Ancients & Hoplitikon of Melbourne under fire of Persian arrows

15th Australasian Historical Conference 2009 The highlite of the Conference was the "Battle of Marathon, Archaeological Experiment". The groups that took part were, the Sydney Ancients, Mare Nostrvm of Brisbane and the Ancient Hoplitikon of Melbourne. Our objective was to simulate the conditions of Hoplites in Phalanx formation, under stress of arrow fire. Discipline and teamwork was effective and injuries were minimal. We hope to repeat this experiment in future with more members and archers too!

MACH TOU MARAQONA 490pc. THE BATTLE OF MARATHON 490 B.C. John Stuart Mill famously suggested that the "Battle of Marathon, even as an event in British History, is more important than the Battle of Hastings". The Athenians and the Plataeans had dashed a mile in their armour to meet the Persians. The chorus of Aristophanes' Wasps, 'Marathon Men', sang of how they had run through the arrows to reach the Persians and shoved them back until evening. It was the first time a Greek Army had successfully faced the Persian enemy and demonstrated the superiority of Hoplite tactics and equipment. The Greek advantage in discipline, morale and technology on this occasion proved decisive.
