Gladiator by Nick Pierce

The gladiators were among the most celebrated and famous figures in the Roman empire, entertaining huge audiences by fighting wild animals - and each other - to the death. In this fascinating guide, children can follow the fate of a Celtic warrior captured in Gaul and sent to compete as a gladiator in Rome. The detailed, fold-out illustrations and accessible text will teach them about the brutal and dangerous lives that gladiators led.
