By: D. L. Bomgardner
David Bomgardner traces the origins and development of that most typical and evocative of Roman monuments, the amphitheatre. He shows that they played a central role in the social and political life of ancient Rome and looks further at their origins, the form the spectacles took and their decline and final fall in the late empire.
