Gladiators By Madison Arthur

My topic is about gladiators

The earliest gladiator games were 264 BC . The gladiators circled each other with weapons . Men who fight to the death for the enjoyment of others .Each knows that his objective is to maim or trap his opponent .

They were used for war and some of them were prisoners . Gladiators are armed combatant who entertained audiences .

The thunderous cheering of the crowd suffocated the scream of the dying man as he fell heavily to the sand. Staring at the sky he blinked in shock, pressed his hands on the injured ribs as if trying to contain the stream of blood that came out of them. The blood felt hot on his hands and fingers and although it was not a new sensation to him he felt as if it was the first time he had sensed it. The pain became more intensive and he realized what had happened. His lips twisted in a smile and blood poured from his mouth and ran down his neck. I’m free he murmured so low that he couldn’t even hear it.

I couldn't find anything about any famous things about it except for fighting

We still have army's and wars that came from roman gladiators ways

For more than 650 years, people flocked to arenas across the empire to watch these armed and highly trained warriors engage in a blood-soaked spectacle equal parts sports

Not all gladiators were brought to the arena in chains. While most early combatants were conquered peoples and slaves who had committed crimes
