This is a 10,000-year-old tale that begins in a bone-dry cave in the remote southwest corner of Egypt, winds its way through ancient Greece and Rome, flows mostly underground through the Middle Ages, and then re-emerges in the wake of the Renaissance before finishing with the Tokyo Olympics. It is a multi-tiered tour through religion, fashion low and high, architecture, sanitation and public health, colonialism, segregation and integration, feats of aquatic endurance, terror of the deep, sexism, sexiness, guts, glory and much, much more.
