The Colosseum is one of the world's most amazing buildings. Built during the reign of the Emperor Vespasiano in c.72AD, this immense oval stadium was home to the most violent and deadly spectator sports in history, and the making of many 'gladiator' heroes. Using state-of-the-art computer graphics, Colosseum brings the world of Ancient Rome to life and shows how and why this most extraordinary of human monuments was built.



Roman waterworks. How were the aqueducts planned and built? What happened to the water in catchment, urban distribution and drainage? What hydraulics and drainage was involved? In a study ranging through the Roman aqueducts of France, Germany, Spain, North Africa, Turkey and Israel, Trevor Hodge examines these often neglected aspects of what the Romans themselves regarded as one of the greatest glories of their civilisation.
