From Flagpole Sitting to Mumble a Sparrow, Edward Brooke-Hitching brings to light some of the most curious, dangerous and downright bizarre sports that mankind has ever devised - before seeing sense and giving them up. After all, who would ever want to bring back Fox Tossing, a popular sport for couples in 17th-century Germany? Or Firework Boxing, which is exactly as dangerous as it sounds? Must be read to be believed.
