The Amphitheater of Rome!
For my humanities project, I am researching the Colosseum. About the Colosseum, I am looking up things that make the building unique. A few facts about the amphitheater are that it is not in a circle, but in an oval and it can seat up to 50,000 people! Also, for my 3-D display, I am planning on making my interpretation of a velarium. A velarium is an awning that was used as shade in the Colosseum. It was held by masts and constructed by over 1,000 men. During this next week, I will need to work on and finish the museum display and the trifold for my project.
