The exact number of people who died in the Roman Colosseum is notknown. However, it is suggested that close to 500,000 people werekilled and over one million wild animals as w…ell.
Construction began in 74BC
The Colosseum which could hold an estimated 80,000 patrons, wascompleted in 70 AD. The emperors Vespasian and Titus are givencredit for its construction. It remains the larges…t amphitheater inthe world and was a crowning achievement of Roman architecture.
The Colloseum is located in Europe, Italy, it was a theater where gladiators fought and people watched. It was built sometime during A.D. but with the earthquakes and fires it… is damaged. It is getting rebuilt next month. It might take 3 years to finish.
use off color clay or grey colored clay. I have to make one of these things, and that is the easiest thing to use, plus, u can add a see-through bottom and put animals there a…nd add a gladiator or something. Trust me, clay is the best, and somehow the fastest. But, also don't forget to add color for the emperor if u r making the ancient model. add green if u r making a modern model.
\nThe Colloseum in Rome was built in the Lake of Nero, began in 72 A.D. and finished in 80 A.D. Hadrian destroyed the entrance to Nero's Palace after the fire and moved the st…atue that was there 'Collosos' to his new theatre, hence the name, and Titus inaugurated it.
Due to the rise of Christianity in Rome and the adoption of thebeliefs associated with it, Public Fights and Executions were nolonger needed or approved of. This made the Colo…sseum obsolete. Inthe Middle Ages, like most ancient Roman structures, it wasquarried for building materials. All the marble surfaces werestripped. So were the bronze braces which clamped the stones of theouter faÃ§ade. The arena was converted into a cemetery. The vaultswere rented as accommodation or workshops until the 12th century.In the 13th century a local aristocratic family used as a castle. The actual "Falling-Down" can be attributed to 4 relativelypowerful earthquakes: two during the late 5th, one in the 9th andthe last in the 14th centuries. In the 1349 earthquake much of mostof the southern faÃ§ade fell because it laid on less stale soil.
The Colosseum was originally used for entertainment purposes. During the middle ages it was used as a source for building materials and today it is one of Rome's biggest touri…st attractions and it is actually the symbol of the city of Rome.
The height of the Colosseum is 157 feet, 6 inches.
It was a total fail &bail,but only for a few months.
>:D neva gonna tel u!
They did many fights with dangerous weapons.
The Colosseum was built with concrete and stone. Concrete made it possible to build it in just 7-8 years. The great load bearing capacity of the arch and the vaulted arch also… made its construction possible. The work was funded with the booty from the First Jewish-Roman War and the labour of 100,000 slaves from Judea were used. The Colosseum was built on the site of a lake built be emperor Nero. Before construction the site had to be drained.
They had battles of strength, killed convicted prisoners, chariot races, and sea battles. The day in the colosseum was divided into programs and had schedules.
The colour of theoutside of the Colosseum is a mostly a whitish with a yellow huewith some areas which are brownish. The latter is a discolorationof travertine, the stone whic…h was used to make the outer coatingof the structure. Travertine is whitish with yellow or reddishhues. Travertine was used for main pillars, the ground floor andthe external wall. The shell of the Colosseum is concrete.
There is only one Colosseum and it is in the city of Rome. It is an amphitheatre, an arena for gladiatorial games. It was the largest amphitheatre in the whole Roman Empire. I…t could seat 50,000 people. Colosseum was not its actual name. It was Flavian Amphitheatre. It is thought that the nickname Colosseum came from a nearby giant statue of Nero which was named after the Colossus of Rhodes.
