Gladiators were an important part of ancient Roman civilization. Most gladiators were unwilling slaves and prisoners of war, but some did win their freedom through their exploits in the arena. This book describes the gladiatorial system, the types of gladiators, their weaponry and the animals they fought. Important architectural features of the Colosseum are also explained.
