About this title


This is the first study of all the Roman amphitheatres in Britain, and it draws on very recent excavations at Chester, London and Silchester. Tony Wilmott describes every amphitheatre, amphitheatre-type structure and mixed theatre/amphitheatre structure in the province. He discusses the different types - rural, military and urban - and explores whether such differences are significant in terms of the uses to which the buildings were put. He then focuses on the participants in the arena spectacles - the gladiators and the animals. New evidence on the identity and behaviour of spectators is discussed. Accompanying illustrations come from inscriptions, paintings, mosaics and artefacts.

About the Author:

Tont Wilmott is an archaeologist with English Heritage, for whom he has been Director of the Chester Amphitheatre Project, and is also Coordinator of the Hadrian's Wall Research Framework. He has worked in Romano-British archaeology for almost 30 years and is the author of Birdoswald Roman Fort: 1800 Years on Hadrian's Wall (Tempus 2001).
