A magnificent pop-up model of the Colosseum brings to life a day at the Roman games and the lives of the gladiators. This amazing novelty book will provide any budding young historian with the perfect introduction to the Roman games. Containing a pop-up model of the Colosseum, a map of Ancient Rome, an annotated plan of the Colosseum, gladiator trading cards and Tabula - the Roman board game - it's packed with information and activities. A beautifully written and illustrated book accompanies the interactive pieces, telling the story of a day at the games as seen through the eyes of two boys - one a Roman citizen and one a slave.
