In the atmospheric surrounds of London’s Roman Amphitheatre, come face-to-face with a Roman skull uncovered during excavations in the Walbrook Stream.

Dating to around AD150, the skull shows evidence of substantial head trauma around the time of death. This is the closest archaeologists have come to identifying a potential gladiator in Londinium.

This exhibition looks at representations of gladiators in Londinium and imagines what life may have been like for early visitors to the Amphitheatre, whether they watched the games or, tragically, met their end in them.

Curated by the Museum of London.
