Archaeologists uncover amphitheatre used to train gladiators near Vienna


www.guardian.co.uk

Archaeologists say they have located and excavated the ruins of a huge amphitheatre used to train gladiators east of Vienna, describing it as a "sensational discovery".

They claim that the ruins found through ground radar measurements rival the Colosseum and the Ludus Magnus in Rome in their structure.

Never seizes to amaze me what these guys find. Just a month ago the tomb of disciple St Philippus was found in Turkey, and now we have an archaeological find to rival the size of the colosseum! Although that is huge, can't imagine it can compete with the iconic symbol of the colosseum. Nevertheless, it's quite fascinating to say the least.

According to the article they didn't reveal the location of the excavation, which is understandable. I can imagine it would attract a considerable amount of people, and that could jeopardize the area. But, I do hope there are pictures on the way.

And how do they know this is his tomb? Did someone engrave his name in the tomb, stating he was a disciple?

I love how we have found so much about past civilizations however there is still so much more left to be found. With a structure that large it is really amazing.

That is a good question that a lot of other people, including myself, asked upon reading the news about a month ago. But I don't want to start a discussion about that in this thread. You can check out the thread here if you'd like.
