History: More on Gladiators

June 7, 2010

You and Him. Comerica Park. I think I could sell some tickets.

A while back I posted on how Christianity played a major role in ending the Gladiator games. I just saw this article on CNN.com. They found a massive cemetary for Gladiators:

“Heads hacked off, a bite from a lion, tiger or bear, massive muscles on massive men — all clues that an ancient cemetery uncovered in northern England is the final resting place of gladiators, scientists have announced after seven years of investigations.”

Nothing like dying by bear bite with 100k people watching.
