Roman Colosseum – Icon of Roman Empire

Share This Article

Roman Colosseum was an icon of the Roman Empire. The empire included large areas around the Mediterranean Sea in EuropeNorthern Africa, and Western Asia. Slaves built the colosseum as a symbol of Roman military might. What struck me at first sight was its vast size. It is an architectural marvel. It must have been quite a place when gladiators and wild animals fought to death. Gladiators were professional combatants in ancient Rome.
