The Colosseum in Rome is designated as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. The Colosseum or Flavian Amphitheater is one of the most well-known of the ancient Roman structures because so much of it remains. Located just east of the Roman Forum, the massive all-stone amphitheater known as the Colosseum was commissioned around 70-72 AD by Emperor Vespasian of the Flavian Dynasty as a gift to the Roman people. In 80 AD Vespasian’s son Titus opened the Colosseum, with 100 days of games, including gladiatorial combats and with the slaughter of 5000 sacrificial animals.

After 4 centuries of active use, the magnificent arena fell into neglect. Lightning damaged the amphitheater, but later emperors repaired and maintained it until the games were ended in the 6th century. Up until the 18th century it was used as a source of building materials and by the 20th century, a combination of weather, natural disasters, neglect and vandalism had destroyed nearly two-thirds of the original Colosseum, including all the arena’s marble seats and its decorative elements.

Restoration efforts began in the 1990s, and have proceeded over the years. The amphitheater remains a popular tourist destination, as well as an iconic symbol of Rome and its long, tumultuous history.

Beloved by the masses and sometimes scorned by the elites, Roman gladiators were the working class heroes of antiquity. For more than 650 years, people flocked to arenas across the empire to watch these armed and highly trained warriors engage in a blood-soaked spectacle equal parts sport, theater and cold-blooded murder.

The spectacle of gladiatorial combat was initiated by wealthy Romans over 250 years before the birth of Christ as a part of the ceremonies held to honor their deceased relatives. When distinguished, aristocrats died, their families would hold graveside bouts between slaves or condemned prisoners as a kind of macabre eulogy for the virtues the person had demonstrated in life. Since the Romans believed that human blood helped purify the deceased person’s soul, these contests may have also acted as a crude substitute for human sacrifice.

The funeral games later increased in scope during the reign of Julius Caesar, who staged bouts between hundreds of gladiators in honor of his deceased father and daughter. The spectacles proved hugely popular, and by the end of the 1st century BC, government officials began hosting state-funded games i to enhance their prestige. The primary purpose of these life-or-death duels was to entertain the multitude of spectators that jammed the arena.
