Gladiators in the News

Forensic studies carried out on 1800-year-old skeletons exhumed from a garden in York indicate that the site was a gladiator graveyard. Some of the remains show what appear to be large carnivore bite marks, well developed right arm musculature and other features consistent with gladiators. There is an interesting account in the Guardian.

This research will feature in a documentary, Gladiators: Back From The Dead, showing in the UK on Channel 4 on Monday, June 14.
