Colosseum is a huge amphitheatre built in Rome. The work of building the amphitheatre began in AD792 under Vespasian, and inaugurated in AD 780 by Titus. The Colosseum could not hold more than 80,000 spectators. Public sport included the killing of early Christians at the theatre by the lions and gladiators. The Colosseum is now in ruins.Answered by arunraj vs, 17 Nov '08 03:27 pm

It is one of the greatest works of Roman architecture and Roman engineering.Answered by kartikay Gangaprasad, 18 Dec '08 05:39 pm
