Product Description
This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the New Seven Wonders of the World – The Roman Colosseum. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.

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.
