Polley, Martin (2009) ‘The Archive of the Feet’: field walking in sports history. Journal of Sport History, 37, (1), 139-154.
- Version of Record
This article makes a case for sports historians to use fieldwalking as a methodology, and suggests a variety of influences - from heritage, local history, military history, and the flâneur tradition - that can be drawn on to make connections between sport and landscape. It uses a case study of the route of the 1908 Olympic Marathon.
