This recently edited PowerPoint on the Colosseum and Gladiatorial Games goes into depth on the origin of gladiatorial combat, the structure of the Colosseum, different types of gladiators, and other facts related to the Colosseum. Ancillary material for Ecce Romani II: Ch. XLVIII. Works well as a mini-lesson or as a change of pace on a 'rainy day.' Also appropriate for students studying Ancient Rome in social studies and for enrichment material for the gifted and talented.
