Roman Gladiator Journal
In social studies we have been learning about Roman Gladiators and everyday life.
This is a excerpt from my gladiator journal.
When the gladiator would enter the Colosseum you
would say to the emperor “Those are about to be killed
salute you” and I would also come into the
Colosseum on horse back and would ride all
along the Colosseum wall while the spectators
chanted for you. Then your opponent would do
the same thing. The spectators had already
made their bets and the fight was about to start.
Two gladiators that had the same fighting style
would always fight each other it was very unusual
for two gladiators that had different fighting styles
to fight each other. Some rich and aristocrats
of the town would hold gladiatorial games and they
would be fighting to get attention of the whole town on them.
