In 2013, the remains of a Roman cemetery were found in south-eastern France. This year, hundreds of Roman graves were discovered, among which were chained skeletons.
The burial ground is located approximately 250 meters from the remains of the Roman amphitheatre of Saintes, in the Charente-Maritime department, on the west coast of France. This clearly suggests that the graves were the burials of people who took part in the arena shows: convicts, slaves and gladiators.
IMPERIUM ROMANUM is in process of translation over 3300 Polish articles about history of ancient Rome. If you have the opportunity to financially support the further translations – even with smaller amount – I will be very grateful.
