Roman Colosseum - Information Report:
In more ancient times of Roman, The Colosseum shone with glory, warriors clashed against beasts and combatants, thousands of viewers glared at the battle scene each day, so why is it in the state it is today?
The Colosseum was built between 72 AD and 80 AD, The Colosseum consists of stone and concrete. The Colosseum was able to seat roughly fifty thousand people at a time and was originally called Flavian Amphitheatre, however, it’s now known as The Colosseum. It was constructed by tens of thousands of Jewish slaves under the rule of the Emperor Vespaisen, but Vespaisen had died before the construction of The Colosseum was finished, so it was opened by the Emperor’s son, Titus.
The battles inside of the Colosseum were mainly used for gladiatorial contests and the gladiators used them for animal hunts, executions, reenactments of famous battles, and dramas based on Roman Mythology, and stories. One of the tournaments lasted one-hundred days. In the Colosseum, though gladiators didn’t always battle to the death, quoted by experts “roughly four-hundred-thousand warriors had died fighting for glory.”
The Modern Day Perception:
The Colosseum is famous because it’s origin featured gladiator battles that took place during roman empires. Moreover, (Dion Cassius) claimed that nine-thousand wild creatures were slaughtered in the one-hundred days of celebration which inaugurated the amphitheatre. The Colosseum was damaged by the great earthquake of 1349 and had broken half of its stadium. The Colosseum has gained a large amount of popularity in the Modern Day, especially after Ridley Scott’s Gladiator.
The Roman Colosseum is still a great influence to this day, and has amazed historians around the world, and though it’s in bad condition, it shall survive for thousands more years to fascinate millions of people.
