BTS – Gladiators: Heroes of the Colosseum
Gladiators locked in mortal combat for the entertainment of the crowds in Rome’s Colosseum. “Gladiators: Heroes of the Colosseum” takes us into the violent arena of the Colosseum and behind the scenes to the world of the gladiators. Theirs was a world of specialized training, discipline, regulation and peril, but also of hope of fame, redemption and even wealth and freedom.
Explore the behind-the-scenes lives of the gladiators and the colossal stage upon which their fate was determined, the Colosseum. Learn how the lives of gladiators changed through time and how the search for gladiators expanded with the Roman Empire. The story is told through artifacts, scale models and multi-media.
