In ancient Rome, highly trained gladiators faced each other in the Colosseum and fought to the death—for the entertainment of thousands of spectators. How did a man, or sometimes a woman, become a gladiator, though? How were gladiators trained? What weapons and equipment did they use? And is it true that some gladiators became famous—just like today’s top sports stars?
