Description

The gladiators were among the most celebrated figures in the Roman Empire, entertaining huge audiences by fighting wild animals--and each other--to the death. Now children can discover what their life was really like by following the fate of a Celtic warrior captured in Gaul and sent to compete as a gladiator in Rome. Detailed, foldout illustrations and fascinating text teach kids about the gladiator's brutal world.
