For this week blog I chose comparison between Roman Colosseum and a modern stadium.
Colosseum was build some 1900 years ago. It has many features that are still used in modern stadiums and arenas: sloped seating for spectators, crowd control features, numbered entrances, etc. One can almost imagine excited spectators rushing in to see their favorite entertainment or game just like now days people go to see football game or baseball. In chapter 6, it seems there are many things that we consider to be part of modern life: bridges, stadiums, coins with portraits of important people, large scale structures, aquaducts.
