|Dan Shadrake AKA Draco was a brilliant announcer|
In the course of a hugely enjoyable afternoon, I learned some useful facts that might well appear in my next series, The Roman Quests, which will be set in Roman Britain between the years AD 94-96. (Two of these "facts" are bogus! Can you guess which ones?)
|John Warren AKA Vitellius|
|Chris Luck and Jo Bishop|
|The Emperor Domitian - you never saw him!|
|information board in London's Guildhall Art Gallery|
|Draco, Mercury and Charon|
|Charon's belt is scary!|
|The referee at Gladiator games was called the summa rudis|
|Carpenter Graham and wooden crocodile|
|Chris Lydamore and carrot amphora|
|lemon in water kept wasps away from this lunch|
|The Gladiators from Capua|
|Caroline (2nd left) with fab Gladiator Games helpers!|
N.B. THE 2017 GLADIATOR GAMES ARE BOOKING NOW!
P.P.S. For more pictures of this and other Roman re-enactment events, go HERE.
P.P.P.S. The two "facts" that are NOT true are numbers 3 and 8! Did you get them?
What a fun way to research!ReplyDelete
Ita vero! (Yes, indeed!) ;-)Delete
Thanks for sharing these pictures wit us, the gladiators simply looks amazing that are the part of Roman history for so long. In my last Italian trip I was not able to visit these amazing people and sculptures, but this time I would definitely visit these things. I would also remember to keep a detailed road map this time as I forgot to keep that Australia Road Map in my last Australian trip.ReplyDelete
