LONDON’S ROMAN AMPHITHEATRE

LONDON’S ROMAN AMPHITHEATRE

Discovered during excavation work for the new Guildhall Art Gallery, the remains of the Roman Amphitheatre date from the 2nd century AD. It had a capacity for an audience of 7,000 watching animal fights, executions and gladiatorial contests. The ruins of the eastern entrance, including sections of wooden drains, are displayed in an innovative way, underneath the art gallery - which is where you need to enter to see the amphitheatre.
