Archaeologists to undertake excavations at amphitheater

This post is also available in: Polish (polski)

In south-east England, excavations are to begin in Richborough. The place where archaeologists are to begin work was once occupied by the Roman amphitheater.

According to specialists, on the surface now covered with grass, in Roman times there were animal hunts, executions and gladiator fights. Researchers hope that excavations will allow to know what the building looked like, how it was used and why it was abandoned by the Romans.

Work is expected to begin in March this year; the place is to be made available to tourists by spring 2021.

Interestingly, there is a Roman fort in the area, which was used, among others during the invasion of Britain in 43 CE and held his military role until the beginning of the fifth century, when the Romans left Britain.
