The Story of the Roman Amphitheatre


The Story of the Roman Amphitheatre
280 pages

David Bomgardner traces the origins and development of that most typical and evocative of Roman monuments, the amphitheatre.

He shows that they played a central role in the social and political life of ancient Rome and looks further at their origins, the form the spectacles took and their decline and final fall in the late empire.

With a detailed examination of the Colosseum, as well as case studies of significant sites from Italy, Gaul, Spain and Roman North Africa, the book is a fascinating gazetteer for the general reader as well as a valuable tool for students and academics.
