Gladiators

Ludus Noviomagipro_gladiatoren
Roman citizens and soldiers loved entertainment. During the Roman era, watching gladiators fight was something like watching a movie is to us today.

What is life without entertainment?
The gladiators are ready to show their skills in the arena. Gladiators are well comparable to the famous football players of today. They were very popular and there even were Gladiator souvenirs (such as sculptures) for sale. To many Romans these were just wild slaves, tamed to fight for their enjoyment. A part of the fight was just a show, to prevent the fight to be over within a few minutes without any spectacular action.

The gladiators are a project of Pax Romana. The gladiators can be hired on request for special occasions at museums and other official occasions.
