Inside the enormous, boldly designed Roman Colosseum, gladiators fought for their lives as citizens watched the deadly "entertainment." Completed in 96 AD, it's a miraculous feat of engineering. This noble monument, and the ancient empire that created it, await young readers on these stunningly illustrated pages. Curious children can discover why and how the Colosseum was built; how it was decorated; who was allowed to enter; what took place behind the scenes; and what the Roman world was like. Full-color cutaways reveal the details of this astounding architectural achievement, and pinpoint enlargements focus on the day-to-day life of the people—including how they ate, dressed, and sometimes fought.
