The origin of fights
In ancient Rome gladiators were professional fighters. They looked similar to the gladiator on the coloring picture. They competed against each other in public exhibitions. It was a matter of life and death.
The fight itself was called gladiature. The word comes from the Latin ""gladius"" - ""thrusting sword"". Gladiator fights took place 264 before Christ until the beginning of the 5th century after Christ. One assumes a religious background in the context of celebrations of the dead.
A cruel event
Gladiator fights were organized by wealthy private individuals. They could afford the costs incurred by the gladiators, as well as the lavish banquet afterwards. The Roman people loved the fights very much. So the games and fights were organized bigger and more splendid. Until then, the spectators had followed the action, standing on the sidelines and crowded together. Later, the first wooden seating stands were erected and the first animal rush became an integral part of the program.
