  2. Colosseum The Colosseum is where the ancient Romans gathered to watch bloody combat between gladiators, and battles between men and wild animals. This is where they threw people to the lions! To see men being killed was very entertaining to the ancient Romans. On occasion, they flooded the Colosseum with water, to hold naval battles. During the battles, many competitors died. The Colosseum could seat 45,000 spectators. Some people were not lucky enough to have a seat in the Colosseum. If you didn't mind standing, the Colosseum could hold up to 80,000 spectators The ancient Romans were great builders. They built things to last. The Colosseum was built of concrete, faced with stone, as were most amphitheatres. It was built in the early days of the Roman Empire, around 70 BC. It was designed to host huge spectacles. Anyone could attend the events in the Colosseum. (to get in was free). By Aleck Xanthakis

  15. Roman foods and drinks Ancient Rome has lots of foods from all over from emmer a type of cereal close to wheat to a more simple wine. Romans had more simple meals before discovering wine and other more complex foods. The romans invented the saying You are what you eat. Bread is the single most eaten food in ancient roman.

  18. The roman aqueducts Aqueducts were designed for France to transport water from the source to the cities so people had fresh water instead of walking to the source and back, and it was a long way up. Aqueducts were first started to be built in 312 BC, so they could have fresh water in Rome and France, the aqueduct drops 1metre every 280 metres in length so the water can flow otherwise if the aqueducts were completely level, no water would flow down to the cities. Roman aqueducts used gravity to tansport water to the city because there is a down force that forces the water down the aqueduct toward the city to supply water. DID YOU KNOW? The French aqueduct “pont du gard” took 35 years to construct “WOW”. A picture of the roman aqueduct
