The Gladiators

A three-dimensional board book in the shape of the Colosseum reveals layer upon layer of history surrounding one of the Roman Empire’s most fascinating (and frightening) pastimes: the various weapons employed in the popular battles, the place where wild animals were kept and transported by elevator to the arena, the status of the warriors as slaves and prisoners, and the emperor’s role as overseer. Ages seven and up.
