The Roman Colosseum

     The Flavian Amphitheater, commonly known as the Roman Colosseum is one of the most visited sites in the world. The Colosseum was built to provide entertainment for the all citizens and slaves of ancient Rome. There were many events that occured at the Colosseum including gladiator battles and even mock  sea battles. The emperor that ruled before the construction of the Colosseum was very self-centered. Emperor Vespasian, the new emporer worked on creating a building that the citizens could enjoy. Emperor Vespasian destroyed the old emperor’s palace and replaced it with a building that would let all citizens enjoy themselves. Emperor Vespasian died before the Colosseum could be opened, but his son Titus continued the construction. The name Flavian Amphitheater came from Emperor Titus’ name which was General Titus Flavius Sabinus Vespasianus. Titus opened the Colosseum in 80 A.D. to allow all the peoples of Rome to enjoy themselves. Today people still enjoy the Colosseum, not as an entertainment venue, but as a historical landmark.
