Gladiator School Austria

A group of Austrian archaeologists have discovered the ruins of an ancient gladiator school east of the capital, Vienna.

Using radar technology, the archaeologists have produced a computer simulation showing what the school used to be in the third century.

During the Roman empire, gladiators would train at the compound to prepare for fights at the Colosseum in Rome.
