Ivo Rato


Sandra Rato and her father Ivo Rato worked together in the research and writing of “Chariot of Knowledge: The Lost History of the Ancient Olympic Games.” Their research into the Ancient Olympics’ secret history is grounded in their Lusitanian (Portuguese Celtic) heritage, and refined through Sandra’s studies in archaeology and anthropology at La Trobe University. Their shared journey towards publishing this book began with a re-enactment of the ancient Isthmian Games in Melbourne in 1990, paying homage to Greek culture while shining light on the games’ connection with Celtic sporting traditions.

“Chariot of Knowledge” finally reveals the long-hidden story of the wider traditions that the Ancient Olympics were just one part of. Based on years of research into ancient sporting events and European mythology, it connects the famous games to a nigh-universal set of mystical beliefs that reach all the way back to the roots of Indo-European civilisation.
