The Colosseum was used as entertainment for the king and people of ancient rome. Gladiator fights, live theatre and occasionally the Olympics.
The Colosseum was a huge building that held gladiator fights and lots of entertainment for the king and the people of Rome.Now days people say they hold concerts and dif…ferant things for people.I hope this all helped its all true. A stadium in Ancient Rome, built by the romans and used for games, it still stands today in the modern city of Rome, although it is missing a portion of one side of its walls.
The purpose of the colosseum was to host public sport events, entertainment, or assemblies.
A Roman arena, like a big stadium. This place was usually where all the entertainment happened. From gladiators to people being feed to the lions etc.
The games in Rome are known today as the bloodiest exhibitions of public entertainment known to mankind. Men, women and children flocked to the Colosseum to watch the bloodthi…rsty fighter's murder one another. They even cheered them on and screamed for them to kill a warrior lying almost dead on the ground. The gladiators had no problem killing one another because being a gladiator was an occupation for social outcasts and barbaric men. The gigantic Colosseum, built around 80 AD, seated 50,000 people. The people came from all over the Roman Empire and regions of Africa, Italy, and Rome. The games became a way of entertaining the wealthy, as well as the common people. Most would set all day and watch as men fought with one another and also with animals such as lions, bears, and even buffaloes.
During the Roman Empire, the Colosseum was used for games of all sorts. Gladiator matches, chariot races, and small ship battles occurred in the Colosseum.
The capitalized spelling Colosseum is used for the ruins of the Flavian Amphitheater in Rome. This is one of the ways it is spelled when used for other structures, a…long with "coliseum."
The Colosseum, is located in Rome, Italy, and is slightly east of the Roman Forum.
'Place of the colossus' (the colossus in question was a giant statue of the emperor which stood outside the arena)
the colosseum was used for entertainment by Gladiators fighting Gladiators or Gladiators fighting animals........i think sorry im not 100% sure :(
When the Europeans invaded Rome many houses were destroyed and Romans often broke pieces of monuments including the Colosseum to rebuild their houses
