This was Rome a city of bloodshed and laughter of food and starvation. But why was so much wealth time and trouble lavished on free entertainments? The Age of the Gladiators explores many savage spectacles of Ancient Rome many of which have become proverbial for their cruelty bloodlust and glory. From Gladiator fights in grand amphitheatres to chariot racing at the Circus Maximus Romans had their pick of extreme spectator sports. Rupert Matthews explores the development of these customs from religious rites into opportunities to bolster political esteem. Were Romans truly free citizens governed by a fair democracy? And if not what part did these free entertainments play in the political chess game? This fascinating book reveals all.
