  The Chester Amphitheatre
Amphitheatres were also used for the public execution of criminals- both military and civilian- and for the celebration of state and religious special events.
What became of the amphitheatre after the withdrawal of the Legions is entirely unknown, but it does seem remarkable that the site of a structure of this size and importance could have vanished so effectively as to remain unrecorded and unsuspected for a thousand years.
The story of the Chester amphitheatre's discovery and (partial) excavation and of the numerous threats to which it has been- and continues to be- subjected is one that has touched the lives of hundreds of people from the end of the 1920s to the present day.

 Roman London's amphitheatre
For the first time for nearly 2,000 years, the doors of Roman London's amphitheatre were thrown open to the public today.
Scholars had speculated on the site of Roman London's amphitheatre - where gladiators fought and died and criminals were torn to pieces by wild animals - for more than a century.
The complicated building project (prior to fitting out) meant that the Roman remains had to be enclosed in a controlled environment while excavation, piling and forming a supporting slab underneath the remains to keep them in place were carried out.

 Amphitheatres   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
The oldest amphitheatres have been built in Campania; some (at Capua, Literno and Cuma) can be dated at the end of the II century BC; some others (Avella, Pozzuoli, Telese) at the middle of the first century BC.
The first stone amphitheatre of Rome was built by Statilius Taurus in 29 BC somewhere in the Campus Martius (its precise location being a matter of fierce debate).
Taurus' amphitheatre, though still in use for a long time, had become inadequate for the splendid shows of the imperial capital, and it seems that Caligula, a great lover of the games had to host the shows in the Saepta, a big public space.
