Tour of Roman Colosseum


A Tour of the Roman Colosseum

The year is 85 CE and Emperor Domitian is celebrating the achievements of Governor Agricola’s victorious campaign in Britannia with ten days of games in the Great Amphitheater.  


Follow Marcus Venutius into the arena’s seedy underworld of betting, bribes, blood and betrayal. From the marble seats of the wealthy to the hot sands and hidden hypogeum of the gladiators, Marcus must determine friend from foe before he ends up more than a spectator of Domitian’s great games.


Will Marcus become another nameless victim of Rome’s most feared crime lord Gaius Lucretius or can he outsmart the criminal boss and walk away with a tidy profit? 


Learn all about the Roman Colosseum and the Great Games that took place there by Stepping Inside the Story of BARDEUM’s Blood and Sand.
