    The Colosseum, Rome
    Photograph Rome. The Colosseum date 1865
    Rome.  The Colosseum -
    from the collections A.D. White Architectural Photographs, Cornell University Library Accession Number: 15/5/3090.01483
    photographer: Fratelli Alinari (Italian, 1852-present)
    Building Date: 75- AD 80

    The History of the Colosseum: 

    In Rome, the gladiatorial contests were held in the Colosseum, a huge stadium that first opened in 80 C.E. Located in the middle of the city, the Collosseum was circular in shape with three levels of arches around the outside. In height, the Colosseum was as tall as a modern 12-story building; it held 50,000 spectators.

    Like many modern professional sports stadiums, the Colosseum had box seats for the wealthy and powerful. The upper level was reserved for the commoners. Under the floor of the Colosseum was a labyrinth of rooms, hallways, and cages where weapons were stored and animals and gladiators waited for their turn to perform.

    The Colosseum was also watertight and could be flooded to hold naval battles. Special drains allowed water to be pumped in and released. But, naval battles were rarely held there because the water caused serious damage to the basic structure of the Colosseum.


    The Colosseum wasn't the only amphitheater in ancient Rome; there were several scattered throughout the entire empire. 

    The gladiators themselves were usually slaves, criminals, or prisoners of war. Occasionally, the gladiators were able to fight for their freedom. Criminals who were sentenced to death were sometimes thrown into the arena unarmed to serve their sentence. Some people, including women, actually volunteered to be gladiators.

    They were willing to risk death for the possibility of fame and glory. Many gladiators went to special schools that trained them how to fight. A few gladiators boxed. They used metal gloves to increase cutting and bleeding.

    Some gladiatorial contests included animals such as bears, rhinos, tigers, elephants, and giraffes. Most often, hungry animals fought other hungry animals. But sometimes hungry animals fought against gladiators in contests called venationes ("wild beast hunts"). On rare occasions, the animals were allowed to maul and eat a live human who was tied to a stake.

    Pont du Gard Aqueduct at Nimes
    The Romans use the arch in bridges, sewers, and aqueducts more for efficiency than beauty.  Describe how the Pont du Gard is visually beautiful as well as efficient. 


    The Pont du Gard is visually beautiful because it was designed as a three-level aqueduct that allowed water to flow across the Garon River.  It was part of a system that provided 52,834,410.5 gallons of water to the city. This water was then distributed to fountains, baths and private homes  of the city of Nimes.

    Roman Architecture: Arch, Barrel Vault, and Groin Vault
    Roman Architectue Examples
    Romans were master architects and used old techniques in innovative ways.  Use the arch, barrel vault, and groin vault together to create a drawing of a structure. 
    الرومان كانوا مهندسين رئيسيين واستخدموا التقنيات القديمة بطرق مبتكرة. استخدم القوس ، قبو البرميل ، قبو الفخذ معًا لإنشاء رسم لهيكل.
    Los romanos eran arquitectos maestros y usaban técnicas antiguas de maneras innovadoras. Use el arco, la bóveda de cañón y la bóveda de la ingle para crear un dibujo de una estructura.
    رومیان ماسټر معمار وو او په نوښت لارو کې زاړه تخنیکونه کارول. د جوړښت رسم جوړولو لپاره آرچ ، بیرل والټ ، او د پوټکي والټ په ګډه وکاروئ.

    Roman Architecture Examples: 

     Giovanni Paolo Panini view of the colosseum Walters  
    Much of the Romans' architecural mastery is due to their use of concrete.  Mixing a dry aggregate with a mortar that would take up water and then harden gave the Romans a range of building materials of great flexibility and strength.  Roman concrete is very similar to modern Portland cement.

    Alexander the Great has been identified with the horns of the ram-headed Egyptian god Amun because they represent him as a world conqueror.  He dominated the ends of the world, the lands of the rising and setting sun. 
    What do you think the expression on his face conveys? 

    Alejandro Magno ha sido identificado con los cuernos del dios egipcio Amón de los espolones, porque lo representan como un conquistador mundial. Dominaba los confines del mundo, las tierras del sol naciente y del ocaso.
