Queensland Museum’s new exhibition Gladiators: Heroes of the Colosseum hosted a launch event on Thursday, 22 June. With more than 110 artefacts unearthed from the amphitheatres of Rome and Pompeii, the Australian exclusive exhibition takes visitors on a fascinating journey back in time. Unique pieces of history are showcased alongside interactive games and displays to reveal who the gladiators were, where they lived, and how they trained.
Gladiators: Heroes of the Colosseum will run until 28 January, 2018.
