Roman London’s amphitheatre

For over a hundred years people searched for the Roman amphitheatre of London. Finally, in 1988, during a dig at the City’s medieval Guildhall, the astonishing discovery was made. A curving stone wall around the arena and timber beams for the seating tiers confirmed that the gladiators’ place of spectacle – lost for over 1500 years – had finally been found. This popular book about the amphitheatre and the gladiatorial contests held there is now available in a new updated edition.
