Gladiators, heroes of the Colosseum

Musée de la Romanité, Nîmes.   |  On until Sep 24

Learn about the often poorly known everyday life of these important heroes who have been immortalised in the imagination by many references in epic films.

The history of gladiators, the famous heroes of the arena, is unfolded in Nîmes. See their daily life, equipment and training and the ingenious construction of the amphitheatres in which they fought—and become one of these heroes yourself for a day.

The exhibition is from the Coliseum in Rome and uses the latest scientific discoveries to show the world of gladiators, with exceptional facilities and interaction.

It is the last chance to see this exhibition as it is finishing its round-the-world trip in Nîmes, in the stunning new Roman museum.
