Archaeologists Discovered Gladiator School Underneath Vienna

Archaeologists
in Austria have discovered the remains of an unusual school under the
grounds of Vienna: a school for Roman gladiators, where slaves and prisoners
were taught to fight to the death.

One of the distinctive parts of the ruins is a thick wooden post
in the middle of the training area which was used by gladiators as a
practice enemy.

The Roemisch-Germanisches Zentralmuseum said the three-dimensional
images of the school reveal it to have been a mixture of a barracks
and a prison.
